Treatment of Kidney Denervation in Resistant Hypertension Patients
Meidianaser Putra, Yerizal Karani
Hypertension is still a global health problem. Hypertension contributes to the highest mortality and morbidity in the world. Resistant hypertension is categorized as an increase in blood pressure above 140/90 mmHg and an average 24 hour ambulatory blood pressure 130/80 mmHg, although it has received 3 or more different antihypertensive therapies with the maximum dose, including diuretics. The incidence ranges from 5 – 30% with 10% being in the category of true resistance, more often in women, the elderly, obesity, diabetes and renal insufficiency.
Kidney denervation therapy is done by “burning” permanently most of the kidney sympathetic nerves, so that it becomes an alternative therapy that can be done to control the patient's blood pressure. Various studies (SYMPLICITY I, II, III) that have been conducted show a significant success rate in controlling blood pressure with minimal side effects.
