Short Description
As a new module of our CME courses, in early March 2014, we will present the world´s first hands-on teaching course to manage
resistant hypertension. In that field, a bunch of technological development has been happened during last years. Chronic
baroreceptor activating therapy (BAT) and renal nerve denervation (RND) are under intensive scientific debate concerning their
potency to improve management of resistant hypertension. Our course will not only focus on practical procurement of these new
device-driven techniques, but aims to adress pathophysiological background, epidemiology and daily "how to" of pharmacological
practice. In lectures and workshops, leading medical-scientific figures will provide latest knowledge in the field and thereby enable
participants to critically appraise indication and differential therapy by weighing advantages and disadvantages of the particular
approaches. Participants will moreover get the opportunity to practice and experience device techniques both in simulation, video
presentations and real life procedures.
