Tzafriri AR, Mahfoud F, Keating JH, Markham PM, Spognardi A, Wong G, Fuimaono K, Böhm M, Edelman ER. Innervation patterns may limit response to endovascular renal denervation.

Summary: The purpose of this study was to correlate response to endovascular radiofrequency ablation of renal arteries with nerve and ganglia distributions. We examined how renal neural network anatomy affected treatment efficacy.
