Physical Effects of Increased Venous and Extrarenal Pressure on Renal Vascular Resistance
The oil perfused kidney preparation was used to determine the passive effects of increased venous and extrarenal pressure on renal vascular resistance. The dimensional tube factor of renal resistance varied inversely with the arteriovenous pressure gradient because this pressure difference also determined the pressure difference across the walls of the intrarenal vessels.
