Abstract

The spontaneously hypertensive rat (SHR) has been shown to possess elevated efferent sympathetic nerve activity, and renal denervation delays the development of hypertension in this genetic strain. Evidence that the renal sympathetic nerves have direct effects on tubular function suggests that one of the mechanisms for increasing arterial pressure in the SHR might involve neurally mediated sodium retention.
