Introduction
Renal denervation (RD) can lead to a significant and sustained decrease in mean values of arterial blood pressure (BP). However, there is still a subset of patients without a significant BP drop after RD (non-responders).

Aim
To compare characteristics of RD responders to RD non-responders and to identify the clinical predictors of BP reduction.

Material and methods
Thirty-one patients with diagnosed resistant hypertension underwent RD. Three years after RD the analysis of BP reduction was performed in regard to the baseline patient characteristics.

Results
After 3 years’ follow-up a 10% or more reduction of systolic baseline BP was observed in 74% of patients. Ten percent or more reduction of diastolic baseline BP was observed in 71% of patients. Among responders we observed the following risk factors: hypercholesterolemia in 70%, body mass index (BMI) > 30 kg/m2 in 55%, diabetes mellitus in 35%, current smoking in 5%. Comorbidity included coronary artery disease (CAD) in 30%, cardiomyopathy in 10%, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) in 10%, renal insufficiency in 10%, and ventricular arrhythmia in 5%. Among non-responders we observed the following risk factors: hypercholesterolemia in 38%, diabetes mellitus type 2 in 38% and BMI > 30 kg/m2 in 86%. Comorbidity included CAD in 50% and cardiomyopathy in 13% of patients.

Conclusions
A 10% reduction of systolic baseline BP was observed in 74% of patients 3 years after renal denervation. Clinical factors like COPD, chronic kidney disease 3a, female sex and hypercholesterolemia increase the chances of effective reduction of BP.
