INTRODUCTION Catheter-based renal denervation (RDN) reduces local and whole-body sympathetic activity and blood pressure (BP) in patients with resistant hypertension. However, safety concerns exist concerning the development of orthostatic dysfunction after RDN. METHODS AND RESULTS In 36 patients (65 ± 7.6 years, 75% male) with resistant hypertension (office BP 162 ± 24/91 ± 14 mm Hg) treated with 4.8 ± 1.7 antihypertensive drugs, tilt table testing (TTT) was performed before and three months… CONTINUE READING
