This can be explained by the involvment of neurohormonal factors the disruption of intrarenal hemodynamics and the decreasing of transrenal perfusion pres- sure.
In the early stages of CsA administration kidney damage can occur, which causes alterations in intrarenal hemodynamics related to afferent arteriolar vasoconstriction, causing a decrease in glomerular filtration rate, renal plasma flow, loss of proximal tubular cells brush border, proximal tubule dilatation, swelling, necrosis, and infiltration of white blood cells in the kidney cortex.
In low volume states, such as hemorrhage, multiple alterations occur in both systemic and intrarenal hemodynamics (see Figure 2).
