    Impact of local vascular lesions assessed with optical coherence tomography and ablation points on blood pressure reduction after renal denervation

    Local vascular injury is detectable with optical coherence tomography (OCT) after catheter-based renal denervation (RDN). However, it is unclear whether the number and type of vascular lesions or the number of ablation points could affect blood pressure (BP) reduction. The aim of the study was to assess the impact of vascular injury induced by RDN detected with OCT and the number of ablation points on BP response after 1, 3 and 6 months. METHODS: RDN was either performed with a Simplicity ® catheter or an EnligHTN TM multielectrode basket followed by OCT. BP was recorded prospectively as office measurement and 24-hour ...
