PGI2 attenuates baroreflex control of renal nerve activity by a vagal mechanism.

The present study was undertaken to determine whether left circumflex coronary artery (ic) administration of prostacyclin (PGI2) caused an inhibition of the baroreflex control of renal sympathetic nerve activity (RSNA). RSNA was recorded in 12 dogs. Baroreflex sensitivity of RSNA was assessed by infusion of either sodium nitroprusside or phenylephrine and… CONTINUE READING
