The effect of renal denervation on renal artery stenosis was not well investigated in Henry Krum and colleagues' study.1 Only 18 patients underwent angiography at 14–30 days, and 14 underwent magnetic resonance angiography at 6 months. Therefore, the rate of follow-up was very low in this cohort of 153 patients. How many patients underwent renal artery imaging at 12, 24, and 36 months was not reported; nor was the imaging method used at these timepoints. Ultrasonography has limitations in detecting renal artery stenosis.
