Sample text

Blood enters the glomerulus from a series of branches of the renal artery, ending in the afferent arteriole. Blood then leaves the glomerulus through the efferent arteriole rather than a vein. In the majority of nephrons (those situated in the cortex), the efferent arteriole from the glomerulus divides up into capillaries, which cover the surfaces of the convoluted tubules. The capillaries finally empty into the venous system. In the deeper juxtamedullary nephrons the efferent arteriole from the glomerulus divides to form loops which lie parallel to the loops of Henle and so run down into the medulla.

At this point, specialised cells Applied Anatomy and Physiology and the Renal Disease Process 35 called the macula densa in the wall of the distal tubule make contact with cells in the endothelium of the arterioles which release a hormone called renin. 5). The juxtaglomerular apparatus is responsible for maintaining a constant blood flow through the glomerulus and thus a constant GFR despite fluctuations in arterial pressure. This is achieved through a tubule feedback mechanism in which a fall in GFR results in a fall in the chloride ion concentration in the distal tubule.

Source: Jenkins and Tortora (2013). Applied Anatomy and Physiology and the Renal Disease Process 29 the amount from each nephron is relatively small. A quick calculation shows that at a GFR of 125 ml/min, the total amount of filtrate formed per day is 180 L – approximately 60 times the circulating plasma volume. Obviously, the majority of this must be reabsorbed to prevent severe dehydration. The ‘average’ GFR quoted is generally only average for a young adult. Children have a lower GFR than this because their nephrons are still increasing in size (all nephrons are present at birth).
