Study Design

Observational model case-only
Time perspective prospective
The study will enroll 500 patients planned to undergo a renal denervation procedure (with the 'EnligHTN™ Renal Denervation System') for the treatment of their uncontrolled hypertension.
enlightn™ renal denervation system
The EnligHTN™ Renal Denervation System is designed to deliver radiofrequency (RF) energy to the renal nerves to achieve targeted denervation. The system consists of the EnligHTN™ RF Ablation Generator (generator), the EnligHTN™ Renal Artery Ablation Catheter (ablation catheter), and the EnligHTN™ Guiding Catheter (optional).

Primary Outcomes

Mean reduction in office Systolic BP
time frame: 6 months
