The device has received CE Mark approval, allowing it to be used in Europe to treat hypertensive patients by infusing a neurolytic
agent into the perimeter surrounding the renal artery, targeting the sympathetic nerves that contribute to hypertension.

These patients may benefit from regional blocks, axial analgesia, or neurolytic

26) Nevertheless, t horacoscopic splanchnicectomy may offer a more effective alternative to percutaneous neurolytic
techniques, because the percutaneous procedures often fail as a result of poor localization and/or inadequate volume infusion of the neurolytic

This paper discusses a number of interventional therapies available: simple blocks, cryoneurolysis, radiofrequency thermocoagulation, neurolytic
blocks, and implantation therapy.
Offering detailed coverage of every available treatment option for dystonia, including four categorized sections on medical management, botulinum toxin injections, phenol or neurolytic
therapy, and surgical intervention.
This will enable the Peregrine System to be used to treat hypertensive patients in Europe with the infusion of a neurolytic
agent into the perivascular space surrounding the renal artery, targeting the sympathetic nerves that contribute to hypertension.
Topics also include headache, painful medical diseases, neurolytic
blocks for cancer pain and electrical stimulation of the nervous system.
