Recent developments have led to renewed interest in the mechanisms that mediate the changes in sodium excretion in response to changes in arterial pressure, a phenomenon termed pressure-natriuresis. Pressure-natriuresis occurs in the absence of changes in filtered load and thus, the changes in sodium excretion are caused by changes in net tubular sodium reabsorption. Both proximal and distal nephron segments have been implicated as the sites of altered reabsorption. The specific mechanism… CONTINUE READING
