1641. Effects of intraoperative administration of atrial natriuretic peptide. (Abstract)

; n = 9). Atrial natriuretic peptide was given immediately after initiation of cardiopulmonary bypass for 6 hours (0.05 microg x kg(-1) x min(-1)). Plasma ANP, brain natriuretic peptide and cyclic guanosine monophosphate (cGMP) levels, hemodynamic variables and renal function were assessed perioperatively.Administration of ANP increased plasma cyclic guanosine monophosphate levels, urine output and fractional sodium excretion, and decreased preload, afterload and plasma brain natriuretic peptide (...) levels significantly (p < 0.05). Plasma cyclic guanosine monophosphate levels correlated with plasma ANP levels (r = 0.95, p = 0.0001), correlated with fractional sodium excretion (r = 0.53, p = 0.02), and correlated inversely with systemic vascular resistance (r = -0.54, p = 0.02).Intraoperative administration of ANP had potent effects on natriuresis and systemic vasodilation by elevating cyclic guanosine monophosphate levels. The results suggest that the technique is useful for the management

1642. Renal function and plasma volume following ultramarathon cycling. (Abstract)

and the athlete's training kilometers. The serum urea/CR ratio rose above 40 in 12 athletes (75 %). Mean fractional sodium excretion and fractional uric acid excretion fell below 0.5 % (p <0.001) and 7 %, indicating reduced renal perfusion. The deflection of the renal functional parameters was temporary and nearly gone after 24 hours of recovery. Hct declined during the race from 0.44 to 0.42, and continued falling on the next day (0.42 --> 0.40; p <0.001). The corresponding rises in calculated PV were + 8

1643. Aprotinin does not impair renal haemodynamics and function after cardiac surgery. (Abstract)

Aprotinin does not impair renal haemodynamics and function after cardiac surgery. Patients undergoing cardiac surgery with moderate hypothermic cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) were allocated randomly to receive either saline (control group, n = 29) or a high-dose regimen of aprotinin (aprotinin group, n = 28). In both groups, CPB was associated with similar and transient increases in effective renal plasma flow (+54% in controls and +48% in aprotinin-treated patients) and in fractional excretion (...) of sodium and potassium, but glomerular filtration rate remained unchanged. Plasma and urinary ratios of 6-keto-PGF1 alpha to thromboxane B2 (TxB2) increased significantly, indicating systemic and renal release of vasodilatory prostaglandins. Osmolar clearance correlated with urinary excretion of cyclic GMP (r = 0.79 and 0.86 in the control and aprotinin groups, respectively) and 6-keto-PGF1 alpha (r = 0.63 and 0.69 in the control and aprotinin groups, respectively). Compared with preoperative values

1644. Comparison of the renal effects of low to high doses of dopamine and dobutamine in critically ill patients: a single-blind randomized study. (Abstract)

increased significantly with both dopamine and dobutamine (p < .001). Mean arterial pressure (MAP) increased, with the maximum effect of 20% seen with 12-microg/kg/min dopamine infusion (p < .01). No change in MAP was seen with dobutamine. Dobutamine infusions did not change any renal variables. Conversely, all dopamine infusions significantly increased diuresis, creatinine clearance, and the fractional excretion of sodium (p < .01). Creatinine clearance increased from 61+/-16.9 (SD) mL/min to a maximum (...) of 85.7+/-30 mL/min at the 7-microg/kg/min dose; fractional excretion of sodium increased from 0.26%+/-0.28% to a maximum of 0.62%+/-0.51% at the 12-microg/kg/min dose (p < .01). During dopamine infusions, there was a significant relationship between MAP and creatinine clearance (p = .018).At all doses studied, 4-hr infusions of dopamine significantly increased creatinine clearance, diuresis, and the fractional excretion of sodium in stable critically ill patients. Conversely, dobutamine did

1645. Effects of chronic intake of vegetable protein added to animal or fish protein on renal hemodynamics. (Abstract)

was applied to two groups of 7 healthy individuals after the control dietary program. Renal function and 24 hours' urinary albumin excretion rate (AER) were examined on every 7th day of three consecutive 1-week dietary programs.Glomerular filtration rate (GFR; sodium thiosulphate clearance) and renal plasma flow (RPF) significantly decreased after decreasing the intake of animal protein by one third with keeping the amount of vegetable protein constant. The results when substituting vegetable protein (...) for some of the animal protein in the diet without changing the total amount of protein were identical. The filtration fraction and AER did not change over the study periods regardless of dietary composition.The lack of an effect a 1-week intake of vegetable protein added to animal protein on GFR and RPF suggests that vegetable protein may be excluded from lists of restriction in low protein diet therapy in patients with renal insufficiency.Copyright 2002 S.

urinary sodium excretion as well as urinary osmolality were similar at baseline and increased in response to amino acids, to the same extent, in all series. No changes in renal dopamine excretion occurred.The results indicate that in man dopamine D2-like receptors are involved in the renal haemodynamic response to amino acid infusion. Whether dopamine D2-like receptor blockade diminishes glomerular hyperfiltration in pathological states requires clinical investigations. (...) D2-like receptors.In the placebo series, amino acid infusion significantly increased GFR and RPF by up to 15.8 +/- 5.3% and 14.4 +/- 6.1%, respectively, while mean blood pressure and heart rate remained unchanged. Pretreatment with domperidone only marginally altered the renal response to amino acids (maximal increase by 13.2 +/- 5.6 and 11.9 +/- 4.0% in GFR and RPF, respectively), while sulpiride completely abolished the renal haemodynamic changes induced by amino acids.

1648. Effects of rilmenidine on stress-induced peak blood pressure and renal function. (Abstract)

filtration rate, renal plasma flow, filtration fraction, sodium excretion, and segmental sodium tubular reabsorption (lithium clearance). During the placebo phase, stress induced a significant increase in systolic blood pressure (SBP; 22.2+/-10.1 mm Hg) and diastolic blood pressure (DBP; 11.0+/-5.0 mm Hg). During stress, glomerular filtration rate and renal plasma flow tended to decrease, resulting in a nonsignificant increase in filtration fraction. Despite the increase in BP, stress induced (...) a significant decrease in sodium excretion that was due mainly to a nonsignificant increase in sodium reabsorption in the proximal parts of the tubules. Rilmenidine significantly reduced rest and stress BP, but the cardiovascular reactivity to stress was not altered. The treatment slightly decreased basal glomerular filtration rate and increased renal plasma flow, so that the filtration fraction significantly decreased. The treatment-related decrease in BP was associated with a significant increase in basal

increased with ADM and combined infusions (P<0.01). Sodium excretion rose (P<0.05), and creatinine clearance was sustained during both BNP and combined infusions. Urine volume increased in response to BNP alone (P=0.02). Despite a >2-fold increase in plasma renin with both ADM and combined infusions (P<0.05), plasma aldosterone remained lower than time-matched placebo levels. Plasma noradrenaline was increased by combined, BNP, and higher dose ADM infusions (P<0.05). ADM suppressed plasma cGMP (P<0.05 (...) systems interact. Eight patients with heart failure (left ventricular ejection fractions <35%) received 4-hour infusions of BNP (3.0 pmol. kg(-1). min(-1)) alone, ADM (2.7 pmol. kg(-1). min(-1) and 5.4 pmol. kg(-1). min(-1) for 2 hours each) alone, ADM and BNP combined, and placebo. BNP and ADM infusions raised plasma levels of the respective peptide within the pathophysiological range. Arterial blood pressure fell (P<0.05) with all peptide infusions, but cardiac output was unchanged. Heart rate

Compared with control subjects (n = 9), ANG II, Aldo, and ANP concentrations were increased (P < 0.05) in HF, whereas absolute and fractional sodium excretion rates were attenuated [47 +/- 16 vs. 88 +/- 15 micromol/min and 0.42 +/- 0.18 vs. 0.68 +/- 0.12% (mean +/- SE), respectively, both P < 0.05]. When ANG II and Aldo concentrations were further suppressed (P < 0.05) during WI (...) in HF (by sustained angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitor therapy, n = 9) absolute and fractional sodium excretion increased (P < 0.05) to the level of control subjects (108 +/- 34 micromol/min and 0.70 +/- 0.23%, respectively). Renal free water clearance increased during WI in control subjects but not in HF, albeit plasma vasopressin concentrations were similar in the two groups. In conclusion, the neuroendocrine link between volume sensing and renal sodium excretion is preserved in compensated

and filtration fraction (FF) in the high N/D ratio group. In the second experiment, we examined the renal response to graded angiotensin II (Ang II) infusion while subjects were euglycemic and salt replete. High N/D ratio was associated with an enhanced FF response to Ang II. In the third experiment, the N/D ratio and GFR were assessed after 3 weeks of ACE inhibition. This maneuver corrected the high N/D ratio, but it had no effect on glomerular hyperfiltration. These results suggest that RAS activation does (...) Relationship between diurnal blood pressure, renal hemodynamic function, and the renin-angiotensin system in type 1 diabetes. In patients with diabetes, altered diurnal blood pressure (BP) regulation (high night-to-day [N/D] ratio, or "nondipping") is associated with increases in albumin excretion and a decline in the glomerular filtration rate (GFR) by an unknown mechanism. Because it is known that renin angiotensin system (RAS) activation and defective glucose control contribute to adverse

Levels of urinary NHE3 normalized to urinary creatinine level were increased in patients with prerenal azotemia and 6 times as much in patients with ATN, without overlap (ATN, 0.78 +/- 0.36; prerenal azotemia, 0.12 +/- 0.08; P < 0.001). Conversely, urinary NHE3 protein was not detected in patients with intrinsic ARF (...) Urinary measurement of Na+/H+ exchanger isoform 3 (NHE3) protein as new marker of tubule injury in critically ill patients with ARF. It has been shown that apical sodium transporters of the renal tubule can be detected by immunoblotting of urine membrane fraction from rats. We raised the hypothesis that protein levels of the Na+/H+ exchanger isoform 3 (NHE3), the most abundant apical sodium transporter in renal tubule, should be increased in urine of patients presenting with acute renal failure
