1. A blood pressure decreasing system for decreasing blood pressure of a patient by blocking the sympathetic nerves to kidney and all three sympathetic pathways to adrenal gland medulla accompanied by expansion of the renal artery of the patient, characterized by comprising;
at least one sensor for measuring the blood pressure of said patient and generating systolic blood pressure value and/or diastolic blood pressure value;
one set of electrodes that are adapted to be placed over L4 and L5 dermatomes and another set of electrodes that are adapted to be placed over T10 and T12 dermatomes of said patient;
at least one stimulator for sending electrical signals to said electrodes for blocking the sympathetic nerve innervation to arterial smooth muscle of the renal artery, kidney and all three pathways of the sympathetic branches to adrenal gland medulla, said at least one stimulator for sending electrical signals to said electrodes also for expanding renal and suprarenal gland arteries of the patient, whereby the at least one stimulator is effective to decrease blood pressure of the patient; and
at least one control unit for receiving predetermined threshold values, for receiving the blood pressure values from said sensor, and for comparing the blood pressure values received from the sensor with the predetermined threshold values and controlling said stimulator according to the result of said comparison.
