Chronic renal failure is associated with impaired urine concentration. Previous studies have demonstrated that cortical collecting ducts (CCD) from uremic rabbits (with remnant kidneys) have an impaired response to arginine vasopressin (AVP). To determine whether this defect is an early, integral component of compensatory renal growth by the remnant kidney, we studied the response of CCD derived from rabbits one week after 75% nephrectomy. At one week, hypertrophy and adaptation in sodium… CONTINUE READING
