High Blood Pressure or hypertension is one of the chief causes of chronic kidney disease (CKD)
and end stage kidney disease (ESRD) requiring dialysis or hemodialysis.

The articles referenced below will discuss research referable to the impact of hypertension on kidney failure.

HERCULES Trial Demonstrates Significant Reduction In Systolic Blood Pressure While Revealing Marker In Hypertensive Patients Does Not Predict

BNP Level Prior to Stenting Did Not Predict Blood Pressure Outcomes After Stenting
BALTIMORE (May 5, 2011) – A substance secreted by the heart that is associated with congestive heart failure and renal failure is not predictive of reduction in systolic blood pressure in patients treated with renal artery stenting, according to results from the HERCULES trial presented as a Late-Breaking Clinical Trial at the Society for Cardiovascular Angiography and Interventions (SCAI) 2011 Scientific Sessions.

Blasting kidney nerves with radio waves helps lower blood pressure for those with stubborn hypertension

American Heart Association Press Release Abstract 21826
Study highlights: 

  • A procedure to deactivate nerves around the kidney arteries substantially reduces blood pressure in patients whose hypertension is not adequately reduced by medications, according to a new study.

  • The treatment shows promise for hypertensive patients whose high blood pressure isn’t lowered enough by currently available treatments, which is the case for about one in five people with hypertension.

Hemodialysis.com Editor's Note: Hypentension, especially uncontrolled hypertension, is a leading cause of kidney failure leading to the need for hemodialysis or dialysis.
