Kidney Transplantation

Course Description

This program, designed for both practicing and trainee transplant nephrologists, as well as practicing general nephrologists, nephrology fellows, and advanced care practitioners who wish to maintain active roles in the care of the transplant recipient, is a state-of-the-art review of the always-evolving field of kidney transplantation. In particular, the new kidney allocation system has necessitated changes in the way potential candidates are evaluated and managed and expanded the transplant options that must be considered including paired kidney donation, ABO, and cross-match incompatible transplants and other novel strategies aimed to maximize rates of organ utilization and kidney transplantation.

Optimal immunosuppression strategies incorporating a more individualized approach with the use of biomarkers and consideration of patient subtypes (women, children, minorities, multiorgan candidates) are topics of active discussion, as are the management of complications such as acute and chronic rejection, recurrent disease, and opportunistic infections [BK virus (BKV), Epstein-Barr virus (EBV), cytomegalovirus (CMV)]. Immunology, tissue typing, and cellular therapies are intertwined in this highly interactive program in which ample time is allotted to case discussion and audience question-and-answer sessions.

Course Objective(s)

Upon completion of this program, the participant will be able to: 1. describe the evaluation and management of the patient awaiting transplant; 2. discuss current diagnostic and treatment strategies for graft dysfunction; and 3. formulate management guidelines for common complications following transplant.
