    Dialysis 2015

    A comprehensive course on dialysis and the management of patients with end-stage renal failure

    This is a comprehensive course on dialysis and the management of patients with end stage-renal failure. The management of end-stage renal failure by dialysis forms a central component of all renal units. However, it is often the least intensively taught component of nephrology training. This course is a thorough introduction to dialysis, from basics to new developments. Our expert faculty provides comprehensive coverage of all aspects of dialysis and ESRF through a mixture of informal lectures and workshops. The course is aimed at Specialist Registrars in nephrology, but is also of interest to other healthcare professionals involved in the management of patients with chronic renal failure. For more information, please visit http://www.ucl.ac.uk/nephrology/teaching/dialysis or alternatively please e-mail Med.Cfnevents@ucl.ac.uk

    The Management of Anorectal Pelvic Floor Disorders

    Pelvic floor disorders form a large part of the workload of the colorectal surgeon. This hands-on course, using unembalmed cadaveric material, provides further training, both theoretical and practical, for the middle-grade to senior trainee in this important area of coloproctology.

    There will be the opportunity for supervised training in surgical techniques on unembalmed cadaveric material in a clinical field that is often overlooked during the training process. The aim is to provide trainees with the background to the nature of these disorders and to demonstrate both conservative and surgical approaches. Trainees will learn how to investigate these problems, the limits of these investigations and have an opportunity to experience a variety of approaches.

    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.
