Frequency-dependent modulation of renal blood flow by renal nerve activity in conscious rabbits.

To examine the influence of the various frequency components of renal sympathetic nerve activity (RSNA) on renal blood flow (RBF) dynamics, a Doppler flow probe and renal nerve electrode were implanted on the left renal artery of 10 rabbits. Experiments were performed 4-9 days after surgery. Physiological changes in RSNA were induced by subjecting the… CONTINUE READING
