St. Jude Raises The Stakes In Renal Denervation With An Outcomes Study


The already hot field of renal denervation for resistant hypertension just got a little hotter. With the announcement of a clinical trial powered to detect improvements in cardiovascular outcomes, St. Jude Medical has raised the stakes.
