OBJECTIVE: This study was designed to assess the influence of prostaglandins on the steady-state relationship of mean arterial pressure and urinary sodium excretion. STUDY DESIGN: Ten nonpregnant and nine pregnant ewes were chronically prepared with indwelling catheters and maintained in metabolism cages. All the ewes received a continuous intravenous infusion of indomethacin (5 mg/kg/day) for 24 days. Step increases in sodium intake (20, 100, 400, and 1200 mmol per day), each maintained for 6 days, were administered as a fixed dietary (20 mmol) component with the balance infused intravenously. Mean arterial pressure was continuously monitored. The renal function curves were constructed from the steady-state mean arterial pressure-urinary sodium excretion relationships after sodium balance was attained. RESULTS: Indomethacin inhibited urinary excretion of prostaglandin E2 by 62% +/- 4% in nonpregnant and 47% +/- 6% in pregnant ewes, and 6 keto-prostaglandin F1 alpha, the stable metabolite of prostaglandin I2, by 55% +/- 4% and 65% +/- 6% in nonpregnant and pregnant ewes, respectively. Blood volume was not affected by indomethacin or salt in either group. Plasma angiotensin II was suppressed less in pregnant ewes (60% vs 80%) by increases in salt intake. Chronic treatment with indomethacin did not alter the renal function curves of either nonpregnant or pregnant ewes. CONCLUSIONS: These results suggest that prostaglandins do not influence the steady-state relationship between mean arterial pressure and urinary sodium excretion in either nonpregnant or pregnant sheep.
