One hundred forty-six hypertensive patients were treated with bipolar radiofrequency balloon-based renal denervation. Significant office blood pressure (BP) reductions were sustained through 2 years of follow-up, with few patients experiencing related serious adverse events. Although confirmatory randomised controlled trials with designs to minimise confounding factors are needed, long-term follow-up after renal denervation continues to support procedure safety and suggests that it may have a lowering effect on BP.
