This review examines the early roots of renal denervation from its conceptualization and the creation of a percutaneous catheter system from a start-up company. As excitement began to grow with early animal experiments and human trials, renal denervation began to focus on the treatment of hypertension, culminating in a disappointing pivotal trial. Lessons learned from this trial are pushed forward, and renal denervation begins to gain clinical momentum as a new set of successful clinical trials emerge. The future for renal denervation eventually may extend beyond hypertension.
