    ISHD2015 Congress

    The Congress theme is “Global Challenges in Haemodialysis: Learning From the Past and Moving Forward” and the focus will be on various clinical and technical aspects of haemodialysis.

    Worldwide in 2012, more than 2.3 million patients were on dialysis of which 90% were on haemodialysis while the rest were on peritoneal dialysis. In Malaysia, of the 32,000 patients undergoing maintenance dialysis in January 2014, 90% were also on haemodialysis.


    Over the last decade, the annual growth rate of dialysis patients varied between 3-5% in developed countries. However in developing countries including most Asian countries with the exception of Japan and Taiwan, the growth rate is more than 10%. Dialysis is expensive. In 2012 the global cost of dialysis was estimated to be close to USD70 billion with dialysis products making up an estimated USD13 billion per annum. Growth of new patients is driven by the increasing number of aging populations, patients with diabetes and various non-communicable diseases.


    With this background, the Congress will bring together many renowned International and Regional experts dedicated to dialysis services to share their knowledge and expertise with the delegates. The content of the scientific program will cover among others, Economics of Dialysis, Dialysis in Geriatric Patients, Interventional Nephrology and specific issues related to vascular access. Separate concurrent sessions will be organised for nurses and doctors. In order to attract the participation of young scientists and trainees, especially from the lesser economies, awards and limited travel grants will be provided for selected registrants whose abstracts are accepted for either poster or oral presentation.

    Immunomodulation of Cardio-Renal Function 

    Hypertension and vascular disease are important consequences of chronic kidney disease (CKD), and they are major contributors to its high morbidity and mortality. The link between inflammation in CKD and cardiovascular disease (CVD) is widely recognized, but its pathophysiological basis is still unclear, as is the relationship of inflammation in CKD to innate and adaptive immunity. In this symposium we will focus on cardio-renal pathophysiology and its links with immunopathology and inflammation.

    The 21st International Conference on Advances in Critical Care Nephrology

     The AKI & CRRT Conference continues to provide a comprehensive coverage of the rapidly developing field of Critical Care Nephrology and AKI & CRRT. It highlights the recent advances in our understanding of pathophysiology of critical illness, acute kidney injury, emerging strategies in the management of sepsis, multiorgan failure, development, and use of biomarkers, technical advances in AKI & CRRT and the appropriate utilization of these techniques. This year's program presents exciting new developments and evidence for hemodynamic monitoring, fluid management, dialysis timing, and extracorporeal support for critically ill patients. A mix of invited lectures, pro-con debates, interactive workshops, tutorials, poster sessions, and panel discussions are planned to continue the tradition of multidisciplinary interactions.
