Direct renal nitric oxide (NO) measurements were infrequent and no simultaneous measurements of renal cortical and medullary NO and local perfusion. Large-surface NO electrodes were placed in renal cortex and medulla of anaesthetised rats; simultaneously, renal blood flow (RBF, index of cortical perfusion) and medullary laser-Doppler flux (MBF) were(More)
Angiotensin II (Ang II) fails to constrict renal medullary vasculature, possibly due to the counteraction of local vasodilators, such as prostaglandins or nitric oxide (NO). The effects of exogenous Ang II on intrarenal circulation were determined in anaesthetised rats that were untreated or pretreated with indomethacin (Indo) or L-NAME. The total renal(More)
AIM The renal medullary circulation is protected against depressor action of angiotensin II (Ang II) because of the opposed action of a vasodilator agent, possibly nitric oxide (NO). This possibility was evaluated by a simultaneous determination of the effect of exogenous Ang II on renal cortical and medullary tissue NO and on intrarenal circulation. (More)
The renal medulla is sensitive to hypoxia, and a depression of medullary circulation, e.g. in response to angiotensin II (Ang II), could endanger the function of this zone. Earlier data on Ang II effects on medullary vasculature were contradictory. The effects of Ang II on total renal blood flow (RBF), and cortical and medullary blood flow (CBF and MBF: by(More)
We showed recently that post-frusemide (furosemide) natriuresis was associated with a major depression of medullary circulation. In the present study, prior to administration of frusemide the tubular transport of NaCl was modified by loading the animals with 5% saline to elucidate a possible interrelation between the tubular and vascular effects of the(More)
