To determine the role of renal sympathetic nerves in influencing renal function during the transition from fetal to newborn life, studies were carried out in conscious, chronically instrumented fetal sheep with either bilateral renal denervation (n = 11) or intact renal nerves (n = 12), 3-6 d after surgery. Endocrine, renal, and cardiovascular parameters were measured before and after delivery of lambs by cesarean section. Blood pressure and heart rate were similar in intact and denervated… CONTINUE READING
