ISN i3C Webinar: Value of kidney biopsies in tubulointerstitial kidney disease: implications for CKDu
- 3:00 PM CET
This webinar will discuss the conundrum facing clinicians working in CKDu endemic areas: whether or not they should undertake a kidney biopsy in a person they suspect to have CKDu.
The ethics and safety of kidney biopsies will be examined, as well as a rationale for why they may be worth offering. We will also look at potential clinical and research outputs from clinical kidney biopsies of patients with CKDu.
- What is currently known about CKDu based on kidney biopsies
- The ethical considerations of kidney biopsies in CKDu
- Potential clinical and research outputs from kidney biopsies in CKDu
