  1. 1. Glomerular filtration rate in adults a single sample plasma clearance method based on the mean sojurn time

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå universitet

    Author : Margareta Gref; Umeå universitet.; [2011]
    Keywords : Clinical Physiology; klinisk fysiologi;

    Abstract : Glomerular filtration rate (GFR) is a key parameter in evaluating kidney function. After a bolus injection of an exogenous GFR marker in plasma an accurate determination of GFR can be made by measuring the marker concentration in plasma during the excretion. READ MORE

  3. 3. A Study of Renal Function in Children with Cancer

    University dissertation from Department of Paediatrics, Lund University

    Author : Lars Hjorth; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2003]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Pediatri; Pediatrics; nefrologi; Urologi; nephrology; Urology; children; sequelae; pediatric oncology; chemotherapy; renal toxicity; malignancy; hyperfiltration; iohexol clearance; glomerular filtration rate; kidney disease; Glomerular proteinuria; tubular proteinuria;

    Abstract : Evaluation of long-term side effects of treatment is important due to the growing number of childhood cancer survivors. How kidney function is affected over time needs to be clarified. READ MORE

  4. 4. Functional Aspects of the Juxtaglomerular Apparatus Control of Glomerular Filtration and Renin Release

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Johan Sällström; Uppsala universitet.; [2010]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICINE; MEDICIN; Medical Cell Biology; Medicinsk cellbiologi;

    Abstract : The juxtaglomerular apparatus (JGA) is a control unit of the kidney, that regulates glomerular filtration rate (GFR) and renin release, and hence extracellular volume and blood pressure. The tubuloglomerular feedback (TGF) mechanism is a negative feedback loop that regulates GFR. READ MORE

  5. 5. Cardiac surgery and the kidney - studies on the effects of pharmacological interventions on renal perfusion, filtration and oxygenation

    University dissertation from University of Gothenburg

    Author : Gudrun Bragadottir; Göteborgs universitet.; University of Gothenburg.; [2013]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Kidney failure; acute; glomerular filtration rate; renal circulation; oxygen consumption; cardiac surgery; vasopressin; mannitol; levosimendan; estimating equations;

    Abstract : Acute kidney injury (AKI) commonly complicates cardiac surgery and is associated with high mortality. Renal ischemia is considered to be the major cause. There is a close association between glomerular filtration rate (GFR), tubular sodium reabsorption and renal oxygen consumption (RVO2) in humans. READ MORE
