Renal Sympathetic Denervation for Resistant Hypertension

The Renal Association has been working with the British Hypertension Society, the British Cardiac Society, the British Society for Interventional Radiology, the British Cardiovascular Intervention Society, and the National Institute for Clinical Outcomes Research, to develop consensus guidelines for how this new technique should be developed in the UK, to avoid unwarranted variation in provision, to promote collaboration rather than competition between the various specialties involved, and to ensure that data from all patients undergoing the procedure are reported to a national registry.
