Arterial hypertension is a chronic disease with a therapeutical challenge for the patient and the physician involved. Patient-independent techniques with good efficacy and tolerability are wanted. The autonomous nervous system insufficiently therapeutically exploited to date, is now approachable by two types of intervention: renal nerve ablation, an endovascular approach without remaining foreign body, and BAT, baroreflex activating therapy using an implantable device stimulating the carotid sinus. The blood pressure lowering potency of BAT appears more than with renal nerve ablation and also clinical study data are more prevalent. With both treatment options the patients having the most profit are insufficiently defined. Given this knowledge, any form of secondary hypertension needs to be excluded beforehand.
