To determine the overall gain of the hepatorenal reflex, hypertonic NaCl solutions were infused into the portal vein or inferior vena cava of anesthetized dogs at a rate of 0.01 ml/kg/min for 30 min and the urinary Na excretion measured. Infusion of 2.25% NaCl into either the portal vein or inferior vena cava had no effect. Portal infusion of 4.5% or 9% NaCl produced an increase of 36 +/- 16 or 40 +/- 17 microeq/kg/30 min, respectively, while inferior vena caval infusion had no effect. With 13… CONTINUE READING
