INTRODUCTION Sympathetic hyperactivity, a vital factor in the genesis and development of heart failure (HF), has been reported to be effectively reduced by percutaneous renal denervation (RDN), which may play an important role in HF treatment. OBJECTIVE To determine the effects of percutaneous RDN on cardiac function in patients with chronic HF (CHF). METHODS Fourteen patients (mean age 69.6 years; ejection fraction [EF] <45%) with CHF received bilateral RDN. Adverse cardiac events, blood… CONTINUE READING
