Perlhaps nowlhere in the broad spectrum of present-day renal plhysiology studied with micropunctuire teclhniques lhas there occurred a greater nor more damaging erosion of confi(lence in the interpretation of results than in the area pertaining to the measurement of glomerular filtration rate (GFR) in single neplhrons. In large part, this decline in confidence can be traced to a recent series of reports claiming eitlher that free-flow aspiration teclhniques may, by inducing large reductions in… CONTINUE READING
