Control of glomerular filtration involves sensitive regulation of glomerular filtration pressure over a widely varying range of systemic arterial pressures. This control is exerted through precise adjustments in preglomerular resistance involving numerous activation and feedback mechanisms. Under physiological conditions, these mechanisms succeed in maintaining renal blood flow and glomerular filtration rate in normal ranges and they provide protection of the glomerulus from elevated arterial… CONTINUE READING
