Aims To determine whether renal denervation (RDN) in hypertensive patients affects the platelet activation status. Methods and results We investigated the effect of RDN on the platelet activation status in 41 hypertensive patients undergoing RDN. Ambulatory blood pressure (BP), plasma sympathetic neurotransmitter Neuropeptide Y, and platelet activation markers were measured at baseline, at 3 months, and 6 months after RDN. RDN significantly decreased BP at 3 months (150.6 ± 11.3/80.9 ±...[Show more]
