Renal blood flow (RBF) autoregulation has been found to be impaired in both norepinephrine (NE) and renal artery clamp (RAC) rat ischemic acute renal failure models. However, the decline in RBF at the normal lower limit of autoregulation is greater in NE-ARF. The present study was designed to determine if this difference in autoregulatory profiles has(More)
The roles of intrarenal angiotensin (A) and thromboxane (TX) in the vascular hypersensitivity to renal nerve stimulation (RNS) and paradoxical vasoconstriction to renal perfusion pressure (RPP) reduction in the autoregulatory range in 1 wk norepinephrine (NE)-induced acute renal failure (ARF) in rats were investigated. Renal blood flow (RBF) responses were(More)
The effect of hemorrhagic reduction in systemic blood pressure (SBP) to 90 mm Hg for four hours on autoregulation of renal blood flow (RBF), renal function, and renal histology was examined in control rats, one week norepinephrine-induced acute renal failure (NE-ARF) rats with intact renal nerves, and one week NE-ARF rats with prior renal denervation. The(More)
The responsiveness of the renal vascular system was investigated in uninephrectomized Sprague-Dawley rats in which acute renal failure had been induced by norepinephrine. The animals were studied at 1' and 3 wk after norepinephrine infusion. Uninephrectomized littermates served as controls. Compared with controls, there was an absence of renal blood flow(More)
Lack of response to endothelium-dependent vasodilators generally has been considered to be evidence for decreased nitric oxide synthase (NOS) activity and NO generation after ischemic or hypoxic injury to vital organs including the kidney. In this study, renal blood flow (RBF) responses to endothelium-dependent vasodilators acetylcholine and bradykinin and(More)
In three patients with advanced renal disease (inulin clearance, 4.6 to 9.1 ml/min) and systemic manifestations of secondary hyperparathyroidism, concentrations of serum calcium and phosphorus were maintained within our normal limits (9 and 3.5 mg/100 ml, respectively) with phosphate-binding antacids and orally given calcium carbonate. The result was(More)
In eight patients with advanced renal insufficiency (inulin clearance 1.4-9.1 ml/ min), concentrations of serum calcium (S[CaJ) and phosphorus (S[PJ) were maintained normal (S[Ca] > 9.0 mg/100 ml, (S[P] < 3.5 mg/lOO ml) for at least 20 consecutive days with phosphate binding antacids and oral calcium carbonate. The initial serum levels of immunoreactive(More)
