Renal blood flow measurements using radioactive microspheres in a porcine model with unilateral vesicoureteral reflux.

Abstract

Renal blood flow was studied in Yorkshire pigs with surgically created unilateral vesicoureteral reflux using radionuclide labeled microspheres. The contralateral, nonrefluxing kidney served as a within-subject control and a group of nonoperated pigs without reflux served as an additional control group. Unilateral reflux did not change the distribution of… (More)
