The recent experiments of Goldblatt and his collaborators have shown that hypertension follows the production of renal ischemia in the dog.

This view is strengthened by the demonstration that kidneys of animals rendered hypertensive by experimental renal ischemia yield on extraction pressor substances in greater amount than do normal kidneys.4, 5 These observations have stimulated the search both
