Six randomly selected high-power fields (x400) of juxtamedullary cortex were counted to determine the number of apoptotic nuclei.
The anatomy of the vascular bed in the medulla is intricate and supplies juxtamedullary glomeruli with blood from the "plexus of spiral vessels" and the branches of the arterial tree, (159) in contrast to the subcortical region, which is only supplied by interlobular arteries.
Effect of chronic potassium loading on potassium secretion by the pars recta or descending limb of the juxtamedullary nephron in the rat.
A hitherto undescribed vulnerability of the juxtamedullary glomeruli in lipoid nephrosis.
34) In these cases, it has been suggested that FSGS was missed in an early biopsy due to a sampling error, or the fact that no juxtamedullary glomeruli were identified for evaluation.
2) Given the similar clinical presentation in minimal-change disease (MCD) and FSGS, it was not until the mid-20th century that it was reported there was a different clinical course for patients with NS in those with minimal glomerular changes versus those with juxtamedullary glomerular hyaline or sclerosing glomerular lesions without cellular proliferation.
A hitherto underscribed vulnerability of the juxtamedullary glomeruli in lipoid nephrosis.
Juxtamedullary nephrons (see Figure 1) have longer loops of Henle that extend to the deep layers of the inner medulla, and their efferent arterioles form both a network of peritubular capillaries and a series of vascular loops called the vasa recta.
In the medulla, these capillaries, called the vasa recta, form long straight loops that run parallel to the loops of Henle of the juxtamedullary nephrons and play an important role in the concentration and dilution of urine.
The juxtamedullary nephrons make up the remaining 15% of the nephrons.
