Renal denervation market forecast 2014-2024 illuminated by new report

Medical Market Research

Renal denervation is an endovascular catheter based minimally invasive procedure which uses ultrasound ablation or radiofrequency ablation and aims at treating resistant hypertension.

The nerves present in the renal artery are ablated by applying ultrasound pulses to the walls of renal arteries causing reduction of sympathetic efferent and afferent activities to the kidneys and thus the blood pressure can be decreased.

Earlier, sympathectomy process was deployed for reducing hypertension but had a lot of side effects which were non-selective in nature and were poorly tolerated. Side effects included palpitations, anhydrosis, orthostatic hypotension, loss of ejaculation, intestinal disturbances and atelectasis.
