Previously, we have shown that an acute injury to the kidney produced by an intrarenal injection of phenol causes an immediate increase in blood pressure and in norepinephrine (NE) secretion from the posterior hypothalamus. The studies suggest that in this model afferent impulses from the kidney to central integrative structures in the brain may be(More)
Increased sympathetic nervous system (SNS) activity plays a role in the genesis of hypertension in rats with chronic renal failure (CRF). The rise in central SNS activity is mitigated by increased local expression of neuronal nitric oxide synthase (NOS) mRNA and NO(2)/NO(3) production. Because interleukin (IL)-1beta may activate nitric oxide in the brain,(More)
The purpose of the study was to provide estimates of stress urinary incontinence (SUI) and practice of pelvic floor muscle training (PFMT) postpartum as well as counseling during and after pregnancy among Hispanic women. Two hundred Hispanic women were surveyed 6 months postpartum. Twenty-three percent had SUI with onset primarily during pregnancy (70%).(More)
The pathophysiology of hypertension in chronic renal failure is complex, but sodium retention and volume expansion play an important role. High salt intake may aggravate hypertension in chronic renal failure, but the mechanisms of this action are not well established. In this study, we have tested the hypothesis that high salt intake aggravates hypertension(More)
