Since 2010, renal denervation (RDN) is being performed in the Netherlands. To make sure RDN is implemented with care and caution in the Netherlands, a multidisciplinary Working Group has been set up by the Dutch Society of Cardiology (NVVC). The main aim of this Working Group was to establish a consensus document that can be used as a guide for implementation of RDN in the Netherlands. This consensus document was prepared in consultation with the Dutch Association of Internal Medicine (NIV) and the Dutch Society of Radiology (NVVR).
