I actually just saw a press conference on this online -- renal artery ablation for control of chronic hypertension. I suspect we would not be candidates unless we had severe hypertension uncontrolled by three meds outside of pregnancy. Theoretically it's very very interesting stuff, though.

Has anyone heard of renal sympathetic denervation?

I wonder if it may keep hypertension at bay in pregnancies of women who have chronic hypertension. I haven't seen any news about this, but just curious if anyone else has.
