The authors regret that they forgot to cite the illustration of the renal artery sympathetic denervation model in Fig. 1, which was innocent originally. The following corrigendum should be made to our previously published manuscript: Figure legend of fig. 1 should read “Fig. 1. Renal artery sympathetic denervation procedure. Renal vessels were exposed (panel A) and renal artery is dissected (panel B) with removal of peripheral fat (panel C), and then application of gauge with phenol solution for 10–15 min (panel D). The figure was from our previous publication in J. Am. Heart Assoc. 6(2017) e004479 .
