Renal Denervation in the Real World: Practical Guidance for New Users

During this unique broadcast, Radcliffe Medical Education brings together a globally-renowned European and American faculty to share best practices on resistant hypertension and renal denervation (RDN). If you manage patients with resistant hypertension – whether you treat directly or regularly refer patients to hypertension specialist services – this expert guidance will distil the most important practical points on identifying candidates for RDN. The aims of this broadcast are to draw attention to the current scale of resistant hypertension in the hypertensive population and to impart a sound understanding on appropriate patient selection for RDN.

Prof Roland Schmieder (University Hospital Erlangen, DE) leads proceedings, and is joined by Prof Michel Burnier (University Hospital of Lausanne, CH), Prof Cara East (Texas A&M College of Medicine, US) and Prof Konstantinos Tsioufis (University of Athens, GR) for a series of insightful presentations, discussions and live Q&A.
