42 Name and describe the parts that comprise the juxtaglomerular apparatus.
Ans: 1. The juxtaglomerular apparatus is composed of the macula densa, a condensation of cells in the distal part of the renal tubule, where it is in contact with the vascular pole of the glomerulus. 2. The juxtaglomerular cells are specialized renin-containing smooth muscle cells located in the wall of the afferent glomerular arteriole at the vascular pole of the glomerulus. 3. A group of cells interposed between the vascular pole of the glomerulus and the macula densa.
- Provide the formula for the clearance test and define its parts.
Ans: Clearance = UV/P, where U is the concentration of the substance excreted in milligrams per milliliter of urine; V is the volume of urine excreted, expressed in millimeters per minute; and P is the concentration of the substance in the plasma expressed in milligrams per milliliter.
- Name and briefly explain the three basic types of dialyzers.
Ans: 1. The three basic types of dialyzers are coil dialyzers, plate dialyzers, and hollow fiber dialyzers. In a coil dialyzer, the blood flows through a tube made of synthetic, semipermeable membrane material. The tube is wrapped around a mesh screen to form a coil, and the dialysate flows around the coil. 2. In a plate dialyzer, blood flows within a synthetic, semipermeable membrane between two plates, and the dialysate flows in the opposite direction outside the membrane. 3. A hollow fiber dialyzer consists of a bundle of hollow synthetic fibers through which the blood passes. The dialysate circulates around the outside of the fibers in the opposite direction.
- What two mechanisms prevent the backflow of urine into the ureters?
Ans: Ureters enter the bladder at an angle such that as the bladder contracts, the muscles of the bladder compress the ureters like a one-way valve. Second, the ureteral openings in the bladder are partially covered by folds of mucosa that also help prevent the retrograde flow of urine.
- What is the trigone of the bladder?
Ans: The triangular area bounded by the urethral orifice anteriorly and by the ureteral openings posteriorly.
- What are the three main parts of the renal tubules and its main action?
Proximal convoluted tubule: greatly coiled first part of the tubule located close to the glomerulus
Loop of Henle: U-shaped segment composed of descending and ascending limbs (thin and thick segments of the loop of Henle)
Distal convoluted tubule: shorter than the proximal tubule and empties into the collecting tubule
Action: selective reabsorption of water, minerals, and other substances; excretion of waste; urine formation
- What are the requirements for normal renal function?
Free flow of blood through the glomerular capillaries
Normal glomerular filter function
Selective tubular reabsorption of important substances from the filtrate
Free flow of urine formed by the nephron in the kidneys into the bladder and the urethra
- Compare and contrast immune complex glomerulonephritis versus diabetic glomerulosclerosis.
Immune complex glomerulonephritis: antigen-antibody complexes are filtered from the blood and accumulate within the walls of the glomerular capillaries where they incite an acute inflammation. Injury to the tissues results from the action of complements and leukocytes; these block the glomeruli, resulting in less blood filtered, less urine output with retention of waste products in the blood, and leakage of proteins
Poststreptococcal infection: formation of immune complexes comprised of antistreptococcal antibodies and soluble streptococcal antigens; larger complexes become trapped into the glomerular capillaries inducing an inflammatory reaction
SLE: deposition of autoantibody-containing immune complexes in the glomeruli
IgA nephropathy: accumulation of immune complexes containing IgA with proliferation of mesangial cells, achromic and slowly progressive disease
Diabetic glomerulosclerosis: progressive renal damage in diabetes with nodular and diffuse thickening of the glomerular basement membrane and severe sclerosis of the glomerular arterioles Results in reduced glomerular blood flow, reduced urine formed, and leakage of protein
Page: 488, 490-491
- Describe three common developmental abnormalities of the kidneys.
Ans: Renal agenesis: failure of one or both kidneys to develop; bilateral agenesis is uncommon
Duplications of the urinary tract: formation of extra ureters and renal pelves secondary to the abnormal prenatal development of ureteric buds; may unilateral or bilateral; when there is an extra renal pelvis present, it is known as a complete duplication. Partial duplication is union of both ureters to form a single ureter that enters the bladder.
Abnormalities of position and fusion: kidneys either remain in the pelvis or ascend part way; most common fusion is the union of the lower poles of the two kidneys to form a U-shaped mass of renal tissue or a horseshoe-shaped kidney
