A sustained hypertension developed in eight dogs 8 to 10 weeks after single anoxic episode to one kidney for 2 to 3 hr. Microscopic examination the renal parenchyma revealed no significant alteration in the histology the operated as opposed to the nonoperated kidney. All eight animals had decreased response to an angiotensin infusion, indicative of increased renin production bv these kidneys.
