Title High blood pressure may be treated by burning nerves near the kidneys Media name/outlet New Scientist Media type Web Country/Territory United Kingdom Date 4/04/22 Description Not everyone is entirely convinced of renal denervation’s potential in the clinic, however.
“The numbers are quite small in this paper, but it did look as if renal denervation lowered blood pressure more than the sham control,” says Tony Heagerty at the University of Manchester, UK.
Renal denervation will probably only be targeted at people who are resistant to medication, says Heagerty, because it is an expensive procedure and generic drug therapy is relatively cheap.
