    study showed no difference between stenting and medical therapy.VERY IMPORTANT study because it AVOIDS treatment just because renal artery stenosis was seen by angiography.
    Taken in conjunction with the non beneficial treatment with radiofequency renal nerve ablation,better Medical management is indicated.
    here one needs to understand that SEVERE hypertension requires at least 3 drugs of 3 classes to get BP down.
    EXPERIENCE HELPS!!!
