Functional renal reserve and glomerular hyperfiltration

Camici M.

Dipartimento di Medicina Interna Università degli Studi di Pisa, Pisa


PDF


The hemodynamic theory of progressive renal disease with glomerular hyperfiltration has been proposed as common final pathway of kidney disease progression. The evaluation of renal functional reserve is an useful approach to point out glomerular hyperfiltration. First the author descibes the meaning of renal functional reserve, mechanisms of glomerular hemodynamic regulation and renal reaction to proteic load and finally explains the pratical application of renal functional reserve in clinical nephrology.
