    We studied ischemic acute renal failure in 28 dogs by micropuncture, microsphere, morphologic, and whole kidney hemodynamic techniques, 18 to 24 hours after the renal artery was clamped (clamping time, 60 to 90 rain). Before the artery was clamped, renal blood flow (RBF) averaged 3.49 ± (SEM)...
