Effect of indomethacin and salt depletion on renal proton MR imaging. An experimental study in the rat.

Abstract

Blockade of the synthesis of vasodilating prostaglandins with non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAID) renders the renal medulla susceptible to hypoxic injury with reduced renal function, especially in clinical conditions characterized by volume depletion. Alterations in renal hemodynamics and urine production may affect renal MR imaging under these… (More)
