Getting on Your Nerves: Role of Sympathetic and Parasympathetic Outflow in Hypertension and CKD

November 18, 2016 | 10:30 AM - 12:30 PM

Location: W190A

Session Description

While the role of the renal nerve in modulating glomerular hemodynamics and sodium handling in the kidney has received intense scrutiny for decades, newer discoveries reveal that impulses from the nervous system can have profound effects on the severity of CKD and hypertension via surprising inflammatory mechanisms. This session describes several such mechanisms ranging from direct actions of the renal nerve to those of cardiovascular control centers in the central nervous system (CNS).

Honorary Moderator: Roland C. Blantz, MD, FASN

Session Objectives

Upon completion of this session, the participant will be able to: 1. describe how the renal nerve modulates renal fibrogenesis; and 2. discuss interactions between the CNS, the spleen, and the kidney during normotensive and hypertensive CKD.

Session Acknowledgements

In celebration of its 50th anniversary, ASN thanks former ASN Councilor Roland C. Blantz, MD, FASN.
