Renal function was examined after unilateral release, bilateral release or unilateral release and contralateral nephrectomy in three groups of rats following 24 h of bilateral ureteral obstruction (BUO). Excretion of water, sodium and urea was significantly greater in rats with unilateral release of BUO than in a single kidney of rats with bilateral release of BUO, in spite of similar levels of glomerular filtration rate (GFR) and effective renal plasma flow. Rats with unilateral release of… CONTINUE READING
