The effect of acute ureteral obstruction (UO) and reduction of renal artery pressure (AC) on the adenosine-induced renal vasoconstriction was studied in the Munich-Wistar rat. Infusion of adenosine, 0.05 mumol/min . kg body weight, into the thoracic aorta, was associated with a fall of directly measured glomerular capillary pressure (Pgc) from 45.2 + 1.8 to 32.5 + 1.7 mm Hg, P less than 0.001. Elevation of ureter pressure to 39 + 2 mm Hg abolished the fall of Pgc following adenosine infusion… CONTINUE READING
