Abstract: Patients with renovascular hypertension have a poor renal and cardiovascular prognosis. To improve the care of these patients, we need to increase knowledge about the pathophysiological mechanisms involved. Thus, the aims of these studies were to examine: (1) renal hemodynamics and renal blood flow autoregulation (RBFA) in an experimental model of chronic angiotensin (Ang) II-dependent hypertension and the role of superoxide and endothelin (ET)-1; (2) the diagnostic value of intrarenal velocim... more
