The reduction in sodium and water excretion observed in the right kidney when the left kidney is subjected to transient denervation, is entirely abolished by bilateral section of the dorsal roots from T9 to L4, whereas section of the left dorsal roots only, at the same spinal level, does not affect the contralateral renal response to left renal nerve cooling. The possibility that the bilateral dorsal roots section abolished the response of the right kidney because the afferent fibres from the left kidney travel in the right dorsal roots was explored in the present study. Experiments were performed in anaesthetized cats in which reversible denervation of the left kidney was done by cooling of left renal nerves (for 10 min) after cutting the right dorsal roots from T9 to L4. Cooling of left renal nerves caused a large increase in sodium and water excretion from the left kidney and a prompt decrease in sodium and water excretion from the right kidney. During the cooling period arterial pressure did not change and glomerular filtration rate slightly increased in the left kidney only. The results obtained in this group of animals were not significantly different from those previously observed in sham-operated cats or in cats with section of left dorsal roots only. As the contralateral antidiuretic and antinatriuretic response to renal denervation survives dorsal root section on either side but is prevented by bilateral section, this demonstrates that the inhibitory renal afferent fibres responsible for this renorenal reflex are distributed bilaterally to spinal dorsal roots.
