Short Communications Physiology, Pathophysiology


Analysis of samples of intrarenal venous (IRV) blood from anesthetized dogs demonstrated that IRV glucose concentrations were greater than renal venous and arterial glucose in most samples. However, IRV glucose fluctuated with time such that this technique is unreliable for assessing changes in renal cortical glucose handling during experimental interventions.
