Effects of Glycerol-Induced Acute Renal Failure on Renal Phosphorus Handling
Previous studies have shown that fractional excretion of phosphorus (FE pi) is increased in rats that developed non-oliguric acute renal failure (ARF) close to 100% indicating that the bulk of filtered phosphorus was excreted in the urine. This finding differs significantly from the finding in rats with mercury chloride-induced oliguric ARF. In the latter, only about 1/4 of the filtered phosphorus reaches the urine, for an FEpi of about 25% (1). A similar finding has been seen also in humans with variable types of ARF (Carvounis, unpublished data).
