Renal denervation gives better outcomes than drugs in advanced heart failure
Date:8/27/2012

Munich, Germany August 27 2012: Renal denervation leads to better outcomes than standard drug treatment in patients with advanced heart failure, according to research presented at ESC Congress 2012. The results of the Olomouc I pilot study were presented by Dr Milo Tborsk from the University Hospital Olomouc.

Renal denervation does not involve any pharmacological treatment. It is a multiple application of radiofrequency energy using a thin catheter via the femoral artery and a long-term "denervation" of the sympathetic nerves around the renal arteries. "This is done to prevent an increased excretion of the substances leading to heart failure," said Dr Tborsk.

The aim of this pilot study was to compare the outcomes of patients with advanced heart failure receiving standard pharmacological treatment or renal denervation. Over the period of one year, 26 patients were treated with renal denervation and standard pharmacotherapy and 25 patients received standard drug treatment with beta-blockers, ACE inhibitors or ARBs and diuretics.

After one year contractile function of the left side of the heart improved in patients treated with renal denervation from 2512% to 3114% (p<0.01).

There was no change in contractile function of the left side of the heart in patients who received standard drug treatment. "The improvement of the contractile function of the left side of the heart by more than 10% in patients after renal denervation was a surprise," said Dr Tborsk. "This parameter has practically not changed in patients treated by the classic drugs. The difference in response might be explained by a continuous decrease of the renal sympathetic activity in the complex pathophysiology of heart failure."

During the one year follow-up, 8 patients treated with renal denervation were hospitalized due to heart failure compared to 18 patients treated with standard drug therapy. Dr Tborsk said: "Twice the number of patients treated by
