The items include an European survey on CKD epidemiology and a multicenter, open-label, randomized controlled trial on the effect of renal denervation for hypertension management. Furthermore, a polar view regarding ABPM for the diagnosis and the monitoring of hypertension in dialysis patients is presented.
