Basic/Clinical Science Session

Remote Organ Effects in AKI

November 09, 2019 | 04:30 PM - 06:30 PM

Location: Ballroom B, Walter E. Washington Convention Center

Session Description

AKI is recognized to have systemic effects beyond the kidney. Clinical studies provide evidence for a strong association of AKI with remote organ dysfunction, which affects patient outcomes. Recent advances have provided better understanding of the molecular mechanisms underlying the interactions between AKI and distant organ injury. This session is focused on discussing the emerging literature on the mechanisms of cross-talk between the kidneys and other distant organs in AKI.

Learning Objective(s)

  • Describe the effects of AKI on remote organs
  • Discuss the leading and emerging research in the molecular mechanisms underlying the cross-talk between the kidneys and distant organs in AKI
