Tubular compliance is the response of tubular diameter to changes in intratubular pressure [7]. Proximal tubular compliance was determined directly by measurements of tubular diameter and pressure and indirectly using a mathematical model of tubular fluid flow based on measurements of the hydraulic pressure gradients along the tubule under free flow conditions and during an induced pressure reduction at the end of the proximal tubule. The two independent methods yielded similar values for… CONTINUE READING
