The multidisciplinary approach to vascular disease in patients with kidney failure and transplant patients.
Kidney failure in patients on dialysis or following transplant speeds up and modifies atherosclerotic complications. Kidney patients present classic and non-classic risk factors for atherosclerosis that make them especially prone to cardiovascular complications.
What mechanisms favour these complications? How do these complications present in kidney patients? How can a multidisciplinary approach lead to better care for these risk factors?
With a multidisciplinary team of presenters who will share their professional experience with the help interactive clinical vignettes, this symposium will examine the causes of and the integrated approach to atherosclerotic disease in kidney patients.
