Effect of the vagus nerves on renal hemodynamics and tubular activity

  • M. I. Mavrin


Stimulation of the right vagus nerve in depancreatized dogs inhibits the plasma flow, glucose reabsorption, and secretion in both kidneys but does not change electrolyte transport. In animals receiving acetylcholine and lipocaic, stimulation of the right vagus nerve leads to an increase in the renal hemodynamics, the secretion, and the glucose reabsorption in both kidneys. The kidneys receive a crossed innervation by cholinergic and adrenergic fibers of the right vagus nerve.
