Question Answer
This part of the kidney is susceptible to ischemia due to reduced blood supplyMedulla
Site where blood constituents are filtered through to the kidney tubules for excretion or reabsorptionGlomerulus
Produces the enzyme reninJuxtaglomerular Apparatus
The presence of increased creatinine and urea nitrogen in the blood is an indication of thisImpaired Kidney Function
Increased creatinine and urea nitrogen in the blood is called thisAzotemia
(Insert 19-24)
Question Answer
This gets partly reabsorbed in the proximal tubuleBUN
BUN gets partly reabsorbed hereProximal Tubule
This is filtered in the kidney and not reabsorbed or secretedCreatinine
The cause of acute renal failure is before the kidneyPrerenal Azotemia
The cause of acute renal failure is in the kidneyIntrarenal Azotemia
The cause of acute renal failure is after the kidneyPostrenal Azotemia
Urine production is a day is < 100 mLAnuria
Urine production in a day is < 400 mLOliguria
Prerenal azotemia is usually due to thisDecrease Blood Flow
Post renal azotemia is usually due to thisUreter Obstruction (Stone)
Increased tubular pressure forces BUN (not creatinine) into the blood. Disproportinate increase in urea increases ratio (serum BUN:Cr ratio >15)Early Stage Obstruction
Tubular function remains intact at this stageEarly Stage Obstruction
Tubular damage occurs, resulting in decreased absorption of BUN (serum BUN:Cr ratio <15). Decreased re-absorption of Na (FE Na>2%) and inability to concentrate urine (Urine Osm <500)Late Stage Obstruction
The most common cause of intra-renal azotemiaAcute Tubular Necrosis
Tubular necrosis due to lack of blood flowIschemic Tubular Necrosis
Tubular necrosis due to highly toxic substancesNephrotoxic Tubular Necrosis
Characterized by injury and necrosis of tubular epithelial cells. Necrotic cells plug tubules causing obstruction which leads to a decrease in GFRAcute Tubular Necrosis
The necrotic tubular plugs are seen as this in the urineBrown Granular Casts
Most often caused by Reduced renal perfusion. Decreased blood supply results in necrosis of tubular epithelial cells. Often preceded by pre-renal azotemiaIschemic Tubular Necrosis
The most common cause of nephrotoxic acute tubular necrosisAminoglycosides (Gentamycin)
Causes of this include Aminoglycosides, Heavy metals (lead, mercury), Myoglobinuria, Ethylene glycol and UrateNephrotoxic Tubular Necrosis
Proximal tubules and medullary segment of thick ascending limb are susceptible to this type of damageIschemic Damage
Clinical features include an abrupt rise in BUN and creatinine after a hypotensive episode, sepsis, rhabdomyolysis or administration of a nephrotoxic drug, Oliguria with brown granular cast, Hyperkalemia and Metabolic acidosisAcute Tubular Necrosis
