Water reabsorption by papillary collecting ducts in the remnant kidney.

Abstract

Water transport by terminal papillary collecting ducts was examined by micropuncture of the renal papilla in 15 rats with a solitary remnant kidney (RK) and in 27 normal rats, 10 of which had undergone sham operation. Before papillary exposure, urinary osmolality was significantly (P less than 0.001) lower in RK rats (685 vs. 1,722 mosmol/kg H2O in normal… (More)
