Glomerular alterations in cyanotic congenital heart disease.
Samples of proximal tubule fluid were obtained from seven different nephrons for determination of flow rate and polyfructosan concentration to calculate single-nephron glomerular filtration rate (SNGFR).
Rising creatinine concentration in the plasma indicates decreased glomerular filtration.
NSAIDs may impair glomerular filtration by inhibiting renal vasodilator prostaglandins and cause acute renal failure as described above.
29] In a healthy organism with healthy kidneys, these adaptations take place without negative consequences for renal function in the long-run, despite the fact that glomerular hypertension and hyperfiltration can cause glomerular damage.
Studies suggest that T-cell hybridomas derived from the T-cells of patients with MCD produce a molecule known as glomerular permeability factor (GPF).
Although the findings of the current study confirm those of previous studies with regard to glomerular C4d deposition, the additional focal deposition of C4d in the peritubular capillaries (a marker of Immorally mediated allograft rejection) in 1 patient is interesting.

Regardless of kidney function, protein intake increases glomerular filtration rate and renal blood flow by as much as 100% from baseline.
