Management of Children with Complex Urologic Disease, from CKD through Transplant

Oct 20, 2020 from 7:30 a.m. - 8:30 a.m. (ET)


Children with chronic kidney disease secondary to congenital anomalies of the kidney and urinary tract (CAKUT), including those with bladder dysfunction, require specialized care to maximize transplant outcomes. Collaboration between urology, nephrology, transplant surgery, pharmacy, nursing, social work, and nutrition is essential. To ensure the bladder is safe to accept a kidney transplant, management options can be varied and can include conservative medical management and surgical interventions. This lecture will provide an overview of the management of children with complex urologic disease, focusing on specific case presentations.  

Learning Objectives:

Upon completion of this lecture, participants should be able to:

  1. Explain the conservative management of children with chronic kidney disease who also have complex anomalies of the urinary tract
  2. Review the surgical management of children with complex urologic and kidney disease
  3. Explain the evidence based pathways from chronic kidney disease to transplant in children with complex urologic disease
