Critical blood pressure threshold dependence of hypertensive injury and repair in a malignant nephrosclerosis model.
 

Author(s): Karen A Griffin, Aaron Polichnowski, Natalia Litbarg, Maria Picken, Manjeri A Venkatachalam, Anil K Bidani

Journal: Hypertension. 2014 Oct;64(4):801-7.

 

Most patients with essential hypertension do not exhibit substantial renal damage. Renal autoregulation by preventing glomerular transmission of systemic pressures has been postulated to mediate this resistance. Conversely, malignant nephrosclerosis (MN) has been postulated to develop ...

Hypertension, glomerular hypertrophy and nephrosclerosis: the effect of race.
 

Author(s): Michael D Hughson, Victor G Puelles, Wendy E Hoy, Rebecca N Douglas-Denton, Susan A Mott, John F Bertram

Journal: Nephrol. Dial. Transplant.. 2014 Jul;29(7):1399-409.

 

African Americans have more severe hypertensive nephrosclerosis than white Americans, possibly at similar levels of blood pressure. Glomerular volume is increased in African Americans relative to whites, but it is uncertain how this relates to nephrosclerosis and whether it contributes ...

Nephrosclerosis: a term in quest of a disease.
 

Author(s): Alain Meyrier

Journal: Nephron. 2015 ;129(4):276-82.

 

For a century, nephrosclerosis was ascribed to nonmalignant hypertension and aging. However, it was intuitively perceived that hypertension may follow rather than explain this nephrovasculopathy. Hypertensive nephrosclerosis was long considered a major cause of end-stage renal failure ...

Senile nephrosclerosis--does it explain the decline in glomerular filtration rate with aging?
 

Author(s): Andrew D Rule, Lynn D Cornell, Emilio D Poggio

Journal: Nephron Physiol. 2011 ;119 Suppl 1():p6-11.

 

Nephrosclerosis can be defined by the presence of glomerulosclerosis, tubular atrophy, interstitial fibrosis, and arteriosclerosis on renal biopsy. Chronic kidney disease is identified clinically by a reduction in glomerular filtration rate (GFR) and has been characterized histologically ...
