Abstract

[Extract] I read with great interest the article by Khan et al., published online in advance of print in the Canadian Journal of Cardiology. This article presents a position statement on renal denervation by the Canadian Hypertension Education Program, and stated that "the limited trial data published to date have shown clinically significant reduction in BP (blood pressure)." However, the authors did not cite references with different results. For example, in 2012, Brinkmann and colleagues showed that renal denervation (n = 12) did not decrease office systolic blood pressure (157 mm Hg vs 157 mm Hg, for baseline and 3-6 months after the procedure).
