Catheter Based Renal Denervation To Improve Outcomes In Congestive Heart Failure

Grant number: 1012100 | Funding period: 2011 - 2013



In heart failure there is a large increase in sympathetic nerve activity that is detrimental to patient outcome, but the factors causing this increased activity are not well defined. There is evidence that renal nerves play a significant role. A novel catheter based technique allows silencing of these nerves. We will test whether this novel technique has the potential to improve the outcomes for patients with heart failure.
