OBJECTIVES We investigated the acute and chronic effects of catheter-based renal sympathetic denervation (RSD) on renal hemodynamics assessed by average peak velocity (APV), renal blood flow (RBF), renal flow reserve (RFR) and resistive index (RI). BACKGROUND Sympathetic overdrive is accompanied by impaired RBF, whereas there is no data on the effects of transcatheter RSD on renal hemodynamic balance. METHODS Before and post-RSD (acutely and after 1 month), in 9 farm swines we measured APV… CONTINUE READING
