Resistant hypertension refers to high blood pressure which has not responded to medication. Renal denervation (RDN) is a minimally invasive procedure to treat resistant hypertension. The procedure uses radio frequency ablation to burn the nerves in the renal arteries. This process causes a reduction in the nerve activity, which decreases blood pressure. Clinic Center offers this brand new technique carried out by a highly experienced medical team with affordable prices. If you would like more information please contact us . If you would like to speak to one of our consultants face to face before coming to Turkey, you can visit us at our London office, if you are not able to come there, we can do a video consultation .

How does the procedure work?
You will have a local anaesthetic for the procedure and it will be carried out under image guidance.
The interventional radiologist will insert a catheter into the femoral artery in your thigh, and through this will access the arteries feeding your kidneys. During the RDN procedure, radio frequency pulses are applied, burning the nerves in the walls of the renal arteries.
The aim of the procedure is to burn the renal nerves without damaging the arteries. Each application of radio frequency ablation will last for around 1-2 minutes, though this depends on the device used. The interventional radiologist may use a catheter (tube) radio frequency generator, which requires more than one application of the radio frequency pulse during the session, or a radio frequency balloon generator, which requires a single application of radio frequency pulse.
Who needs Renal Denervation?
This procedure is designed for patients who suffer from resistant hypertension, i.e. those who have already unsuccessfully tried a regimen of at least three medications to treat hypertension at the same time.
In order to be suitable for this procedure, you will need to have strong and healthy veins.
What are the risks?
As RDN is a relatively new procedure, little is known about its long-term effects. However, it has been shown to be an effective treatment for resistant hypertension.
There are a number of risks associated with the procedure. Some patients experience bradycardia (slow heart rate) during the procedure. If this happens, you will be given atropine.
The radio frequency ablation may cause changes to the wall of the arteries, which can sometimes lead to renal artery stenosis (the narrowing of the renal arteries).
The imaging used during the procedure also has a number of risks. Bruising can occur to the punctured site at the top of the thigh. Other possible complications include pseudoaneurysm (a bruise caused by a leaking hole in an artery) and tearing in the renal arteries.
Renal denervation is one of several innovative device-based interventional therapies, that is aiming for better blood pressure control. It is safe, minimally invasive, and does not leave any implants behind. The effectiveness of this procedure, however, is still subject to fierce debate and controversy.

You may ask what does an “International Patient Host” do? Why would I need one? Well, when you are at the hospital, you will need to read, then sign papers. Then get the tests done, go to the doctor, nurses will say or ask something, during discharge you will surely need some help, and of course the check up day, again you may need help. Your host will help you with the said things. Also, if the doctor prescribes you medication, your host will be there to help you to get them. The last thing Clinic Center wants is their patients to get nervous that is why all of our patients get a host, so that they get the necessary assistance.
