Renal system

Integrity of renal prostaglandin synthesis is necessary to preserve renal function. In the kidney epoprostenol and PGE 2 exert five major actions: increased renal blood flow; increased glomerular filtration rate; natriuresis, chloruresis, and water diuresis; stimulation of renin secretion; stimulation of erythropoietin secretion. The local synthesis of prostaglandins is augmented in a compensatory effort to maintain renal function, in particular under vasoconstrictive states, i.e. after volume depletion or ineffective circulating volume (V§Q§.,,aQ.d.,,O.'..G.ra.d.y 1993).
