Whole kidney response to reduced arterial pressure during converting enzyme inhibition in the rat.


Autoregulatory efficiency of renal blood flow (RBF) and glomerular filtration rate (GFR) was evaluated in male Sprague-Dawley rats during interference with the renin-angiotensin system by a converting enzyme inhibitor (CEI), captopril (3 mg X h-1 X kg-1 BW). RBF and GFR were approximately 25 (p less than 0.01) and 20% (p less than 0.02) higher, respectively… (More)
