Renal sympathetic nerve stimulation is increased in hypertensive subjects. 2 In animal models, direct renal nerve stimulation induces renal tubular sodium and water reabsorption and decreases urinary sodium and water excretion, thus resulting in intravascular volume expansion and increased BP. Direct assessments of renal sympathetic nerve activity have consistently demonstrated increased activation in animal models of genetically mediated and experimentally induced hypertension, and renal denervation prevents or reverses hypertension in these models.
