The researchers' next steps are to identify the appropriate cells to regenerate the vascular compartment of the kidney as well as the compartment of the kidney responsible for blood filtration.
The pathophysiology of OHSS is characterised by increased capillary permeability, leading to leakage of fluid from the vascular compartment to the extra vascular space with third space fluid accumulation and intravascular volume depletion.
According to Stems (2013), two primary steps occur in edema formation: (a) movement of the fluid from the vascular compartment to the interstitial compartment as a result of altered dynamics, and (b) retention of sodium and water by the kidneys.
This is balanced by influx from the vascular compartment into the cerebral interstitium regulated by RAGE activity [11].
These pressures may result in large fluid shifts from the vascular compartment into the interstitium and subsequently into the alveoli as the rate of removal of fluid by the lymphatic system is greatly exceeded (6,7).
