Filtration pressure: Filtration in the nephrons is a combination of physical and chemical pressure. Blood pressure provides the physical pressure for filtration. If the renal perfusion pressure is too low, filtration is not efficient. This can happen with renal artery stenosis and hypertension on the body side and low pressure on the kidney side of the stenosis. Generalized low pressure likewise will impair filtration ...Read more
