Structural changes in intrarenal arteries of inbred Dahl salt-sensitive and salt-resistant rats with acute hypertension were studied morphometrically. After a week on a normal salt diet (1% NaCl), animals were placed on a high salt diet (8% NaCl) for 4 weeks. Systolic blood pressure (BP) and body weights (BW) were recorded, and six salt-sensitive and six salt-resistant animals were sacrificed weekly for a total of five sampling periods. Corrected cross-sectional (C/S) areas of adventitia, media… CONTINUE READING
