Abstract

[Extract] I have read with great interest a paper authored by Dr Papademetriou and colleagues published in this journal. This paper reported a case that renal denervation impressively lowered blood pressure and heart rate in a woman with morbid obesity and severe resistant hypertension. The office and ambulatory systolic blood pressure was decreased by 113 mm Hg and 76 mm Hg, respectively, at 1 month after the procedure. However, the blood pressure reduction after renal denervation in this patient became smaller over time. For example, the reduction in ambulatory systolic blood pressure was 76 mm Hg, 59 mm Hg, 47 mm Hg, and 15 mm Hg, respectively, at 1, 3, 6, and 12 months after the procedure. The possible reasons underlying this observation were not provided by the authors.
