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.
- Review the conservative management of children with complex urologic disease
- Review the surgical management of children with complex urologic disease
- Understand the path from chronic kidney disease to transplant in children with complex urologic disease
This seminar focuses on nephrology and was delivered at a virtual event titled, “The Management of Children with Complex Urologic Disease,” on January 10, 2022.
