This monograph offers a penetrating analysis of the renal functional characteristics of renal artery occlusive disease. After presenting a thorough discussion of the characteristic functional defect in renovascular hypertension, the author describes and analyzes (in individual chapter form) a number of studies on several related subjects in the renovascular hypertensive field: (1) ureteral catheterization studies on patients with bilateral renal artery stenosis; (2) functional changes in the nonoccluded kidney after nephrectomy for unilateral renal artery occlusive disease; (3) collateral circulation to the ischemic kidney; (4) renal vein extraction ratios of p-aminohippurate in patients with renal artery occlusive disease; (5) observations on the relationship between changes in the volume of glomerular filtrate and reabsorption of water and sodium in the human nephron; and (6) the relationship of the macula densa in transferring tubular changes in sodium concentration to the juxtaglomerular cells.

The book is of particular interest to the renologist, urologist
