BACKGROUND Changes in renal blood flow are considered to play a significant role in the induction and maintenance of kidney failure, but are difficult to monitor with currently available techniques. The objective was to validate renal flow measurements with Doppler guidewires and to apply this technique to assess dose and time dependency of the renal vascular effects of norepinephrine (NE). METHODS In 10 anesthetized pigs, flow velocity in renal arteries (FVart) and veins (FVvein) and… CONTINUE READING
