Abstract: The examination of the microscopic structure of the kidney parenchyma and its nervous
apparatus was performed for the control and research of the morphologic background of the
obtained functional results. On the one hand, it permitted us to answer the main practical
question, is the surgical reinnervation of transplanted organs needed or not and on the other
hand, would it enrich to a certain degree the existent knowledge about the intricate
pathologic-anatomic nature of the nervous and trophic regulation of the kidney tissue.
The importance and complexity of this aim dictated the use of special modern
neurohistologic research methods related to the field of "functional morphology," in addition
to traditional methods. Therefore, the kidney common morphologic state, structure of its
nervous apparatus, differentiated evaluation of adrenergic and cholinergic elements, transport
function of afferent nerve fibers and renal ultrastructure were examined.
