Renal denervation for resistant hypertension in an elderly patient despite quintuple antihypertensive therapy: a case report
Hypertension is the leading cause of cardiovascular morbidity and mortality. Renal nerves have critical roles in the regulation of blood pressure and fluid volume, and their dysfunction is closely associated with cardiovascular diseases. The denervation procedure is performed through a renal ablation catheter and has been shown in recent trials to provide impressive blood pressure reductions and a favorable safety profile in drug-resistant hypertension. We present a 78-year-old patient who underwent renal denervation due to unresponse to quintuple antihypertensive treatment.
