FIGURE 4.1. In conscious dogs, inflating a balloon placed in the right atria results in decreases in renal sympathetic nerve activity and increases in urine flow rate and urinary sodium excretion, all of which are blocked by cardiac denervation (CD).

FIGURE 4.1

In conscious dogs, inflating a balloon placed in the right atria results in decreases in renal sympathetic nerve activity and increases in urine flow rate and urinary sodium excretion, all of which are blocked by cardiac denervation (CD). Renal denervation blocks the diuretic and natriuretic responses to balloon inflation [modified from Miki et al. [187]]. Reproduced with permission from Am J Physiol, APS.
