Abstract

Resistant hypertension is challenging to treat, and most patients with the condition fail to achieve blood pressure control, putting them at increased risk for adverse long-term outcomes. We present the case of a 59-year-old woman with resistant hypertension due to intolerance to nearly all antihypertensive medications. After failure to achieve blood pressure control over a 5-year period, with blood pressures as high as 220/110. mm. Hg, the patient underwent surgical treatment with bilateral laparoscopic renal denervation. Immediately after the procedure, as well as at the 1-, 3-, 9-, and 12-month follow-ups, the patient's blood pressure was reduced to the range of 120-140/80-90. mm. Hg.
