Efferent nerves of the transplanted reinervated kidney

Abstract

A dog's kidney was transplanted to the neck and the central end of the vagus was joined to the peripheral end of the nerves of this kidney. In 4–6 months, stimulation of the peripheral end of the anastomosed nerve by an induction current reduced diuresis in the transplanted kidney without producing any effect on the function of the intact kidney. Diminished diuresis was due to a drop of filtration and partially to intensified reabsorption.
