The autonomic nervous system is known to play a significant role in the genesis and persistence of arrhythmias. Neuromodulation has become a new therapeutic strategy for the treatment of ventricular arrhythmias. Catheter-based renal denervation (RDN) is being studied as a treatment option for drug-refractory hypertension. Ablation within the renal arteries, by altering efferent and afferent signaling, has the potential to improve blood pressure, as well as heart failure, atrial, and ventricular… CONTINUE READING
