Intervention/exposure
Study type
Interventional
Description of intervention(s) / exposure
The Kona Renal Denervation System (RDS) is a focused therapeutic ultrasound system designed to administer catheter-guided, focused therapeutic ultrasound treatments to the sympathetic nerve complex of the renal artery to induce renal neurolysis (i.e., coagulation of the sympathetic nerves that innervate the kidneys). This Pilot study is intented to test the targeting and tracking function of the device only. The therapy (dosing) system components will be disabled in this pilot study. This research study will add between 15 to 30 minutes to the scheduled diagnostic angiography.

Timepoint [1] 279463 0
The ultrasound takes approximatley 5 minutes, and will occur after the routine angiography, just after the insertion of the Kona targeting catherter.
