FIGURE 8.3. In rats fed high sodium diet (solid lines), graded increases in renal pelvic pressure result in graded increases in ipsilateral afferent renal nerve activity (ARNA) and contralateral urinary sodium excretion (UNaV) that are of a greater magnitude than those in rats fed low sodium diet (dashed lines).

FIGURE 8.3

In rats fed high sodium diet (solid lines), graded increases in renal pelvic pressure result in graded increases in ipsilateral afferent renal nerve activity (ARNA) and contralateral urinary sodium excretion (UNaV) that are of a greater magnitude than those in rats fed low sodium diet (dashed lines). In rats fed high sodium diet, the activation threshold is <3 mm Hg, suggesting that the afferent renal nerves are tonically active in high sodium dietary conditions [modified from Kopp et al. [144]].
