Abstract

Application of atrial natriuretic peptides (ANP) has been shown to ameliorate acute renal failure in the rat. The beneficial effect is explained by renal vasodilation, enhancement of glomerular filtration rate and lowering energy-dependent ion transport across the tubular membrane [4, 5]. This study was performed to evaluate the effects of a low and a medium dose of ANP-infusion on the initial postischemic renal functional parameters under the condition of a mild ischemic kidney damage.
