Title: Blood pressure management and progression of chronic kidney disease in a canine remnant kidney model

Abstract: The canine remnant kidney model is fundamental to understanding the relationship between
hypertension and chronic kidney disease (CKD). This study aimed to create a 1/16 remnant
kidney model and to determine whether blood pressure (BP) control affects the progression of
CKD. A group of dogs received BP treatment (group A) and another received BP treatment except
for the first 2 weeks (group B). The remnant kidney model was induced using a two-step subtotal
nephrectomy method; dogs received antihypertensive therapy. Systolic BP, blood urea nitrogen,
serum creatinine, urinary protein, and creatinine levels were measured weekly. Kidney tissues were
obtained at the conclusion of the study. Systolic BP was controlled to <160 mmHg in both groups
for 18 weeks, except for the first 2 weeks in group B. Proteinuria was elevated after renal ligation in
both groups, but gradually increased in group B and decreased in group A (p = 0.009). Blood urea
nitrogen (p = 0.014) and creatinine (p = 0.020) levels were higher in group B than in group A. More
histological damage was observed in group B than in group A. Induction of 1/16 nephrectomy successfully
established CKD. Control of BP may be important to prevent or control the progression
of CKD in dogs.
