Therapeutic interventions aimed at reducing high blood pressure still encompass a number of difficulties and limitations. This is the case particularly in resistant hypertension, i.e. a condition characterized by a very high cardiovascular risk. Carotid baroreceptor stimulation and renal sympathetic nerves ablation represent new approaches in the treatment of this condition. This paper will provide a comparison of the effects of the two procedures, highlighting their effects on blood pressure, metabolic profile, target organ damage, safety and tolerability profile.

Abstract

Therapeutic interventions aimed at reducing high blood pressure still encompass a number of difficulties and limitations. This is the case particularly in resistant hypertension, i.e. a condition characterized by a very high cardiovascular risk. Carotid baroreceptor stimulation and renal sympathetic nerves ablation represent new approaches in the treatment of this condition. This paper will provide a comparison of the effects of the two procedures, highlighting their effects on blood pressure, metabolic profile, target organ damage, safety and tolerability profile.
