Nephroangiography in dogs, with renal artery injections of Urografin 76%, resulted in massive albuminuria. Unilateral nephroangiography causes massive albuminuria only from the injected kidney. Significantly less albuminuria was caused by renal artery injections of a corresponding volume of a sodium chloride solution of equal osmolality or intravenous injections of twice that volume of Urografin 76%. Thus, the hypertonicity of the contrast medium is not the main cause of the albuminuria. The… CONTINUE READING
