Track 1: Kidney

The paired retroperitoneal organs i.e. Kidneys lie behind the peritoneum between T12 to L3 vertebral bodies at an oblique angle. Kidneys have a fibrous capsule, which is covered by pararenal fat. Kidney itself can be divided into renal parenchyma, which consists of renal cortex and medulla, and renal sinus which contains renal pelvis, calyces, renal vessels, nerves, lymphatic and perirenal fat. Cortex and medulla are the two layers of renal parenchyma. Renal medulla consists of 10-14 renal pyramids and the renal cortex lies peripherally under the capsule, these are separated from each other by renal cortex named renal columns. Kidneys perform major functions, which include ultrafiltration and excretion of metabolic waste products like urea and ammonium, maintenance of electrolytes balance, fluid and acid-base balance; and also for red blood cell production. They are also important agents behind regulation of blood pressure through renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system, by controlling reabsorption of water they maintain intravascular circulatory volume.

This category includes the following sub topics: kidney failure, nephrotoxicity, Iga nephropathy, alport syndrome, minimal change disease, new kidney diseases, kidney and anaemia, inherited kidney diseases, medullary sponge kidney, advances in nephrology, renal histopathology, kidney stones, nephronophthisis, nephroptosis, clinical nephrology-general aspects, infection and renal disease.

Track 2: Acute Kidney Injury (AKI)

Acute renal failure (ARF), previously called acute kidney injury (AKI), is a sudden and unexpected loss of kidney function which may develop within a week. Acute renal failure (formerly known as acute kidney injury) is a disease distinguished by the acute loss of the kidney's eliminatory function and is commonly diagnosed through the accumulation of urea and creatinine or reduced urine output, or both. Acute kidney injury may lead to a number of kidney problems, including high potassium levels, metabolic acidosis, changes in body fluid balance, uremia, and also affects other body system ultimately leading to death. Patients who have experienced acute kidney injury may have high potential of suffering from chronic kidney disease in their future. Controlling measures include treatment of the root cause and supportive care, such as kidney transplantation.

This session includes Acute Kidney Injury–Experimental Models, Clinical Studies including Toxic Nephropathy, Biomarkers for Acute Kidney Injury, Acute Renal Failure–Clinical, Acute Kidney Injury-Onco-Nephrology (Diseases), Acute Kidney Injury–Onco-Nephrology (Drugs), Acute Kidney Injury–Pregnancy (Pre-Eclampsia, TMA, HELLP, Other Causes), Acute Kidney Injury–Update on CRRT, SLED, Extracorporeal Therapies - Intoxications, Overdoses, Liver Failure, etc.

Track 3: Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD)

End-stage renal disease also termed as chronic kidney diseases (CKD) comprise of conditions that damage kidneys and impair their ability to maintain hygiene by abnormality in functions. Such conditions make kidney disease worse; wastes can accumulate to high levels in patient blood and make them feel sick. Issues like anaemia, high blood pressure, weak bones, nerve damage and poor nutritional health. Also, kidney disease elevates the risk of having coronary disease and heart problems. These problems may occur gradually over a long period of time. Diabetes and high blood pressure are the two main causes of chronic kidney disease.

It covers CKD: Fibrosis and Extracellular Matrix CKD, CKD Mineral and Bone Disorder, Acid Base and Electrolyte Abnormalities, Cardiovascular Complications of CKD 3-5, Chronic Kidney Disease Diagnosis, Classification and Progression, Epidemiology, Outcomes and Health Service Research in CKD, Bone and Mineral Metabolism, Anaemia (CKD 3-5), Nutrition (CKD 3-5), Infection (CKD 3-5), Chronic Kidney Disease–Mesoamerican Nephropathy, Chronic Kidney Disease–Diseases and Drugs.

Track 4: Dialysis and Renal Care

The most common form of kidney replacement therapy is dialysis, is a way of cleaning the blood with artificial kidneys. There are following types of dialysis:


Peritoneal dialysis.


Haemodialysis is required with the patients of renal failure. In this process of haemodialysis, an artificial kidney purifies blood. We should make an "access," usually in the forearm from where blood can easily be taken from the body and sent to the artificial kidney for purification. The access collects blood from the patient’s body and then the blood undergoes purification in those artificial kidneys and is again injected back after purification into the patient’s body.

Peritoneal dialysis

In peritoneal dialysis no artificial kidney is used. The peritoneum (lining inside your abdomen) is used as a filter instead of artificial kidney. Peritoneal dialysis is of two types they are continuous cycling peritoneal dialysis and continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis. Peritoneal dialysis is used in patients having kidney failure.

In this track we discuss Haemodialysis, Peritoneal Dialysis, Home Dialysis, Extracorporeal Dialysis: Techniques and Adequacy, Vascular Access in Dialysis, Complications of Dialysis, Epidemiology, Outcomes and Health Services Research in Dialysis, Transplantation: Basic Science and Immune Tolerance, Clinical Studies in Renal Transplantation, Cardiovascular Complications of CKD 5D, Bone and Mineral Metabolism (CKD 5D), Conservative Management of Advanced CKD (vs. Dialysis), Palliative Care for CKD/ESRD, Dialysis Solutions, Infection, Membrane Biology, Membrane Function, Quality of Life in Dialysis.

Track 5: Kidney Transplantation

Kidney Transplantation is the mechanism of surgical implantation of a kidney from the external which assumes control over the function of purification of blood by performing surgery in patients with kidney failure. It is delegated either by living contributor transplantation or perished benefactor transplantation on the wellspring of organ of the giver. Kidney transplantation is the decision of treatment when kidneys fall flat alongside haemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis. kidney transplants are categorized into two types: those that are carried out from contribution by living contributors and those which occur from inconsequential givers (non-living donors). Kidney transplant would be possible for patients who: could withstand the impacts of surgery, the effects of immunosuppressant pharmaceuticals,, medicines after transplantation. It is possible to give a kidney while you are alive and lead a completely normal healthy life on the grounds that only one kidney is needed to survive.

Under this we have the following topics: Advances in Kidney Transplantation, Transplantation Techniques, Pediatric Renal Transplantation, Dual Kidney Transplantation, Pregnancy after Transplantation, Post-Transplant Complications, Acute Renal Allograft Rejection, Stem Cell Transplantation, Pediatric Nephrology, Screening Tests, Transplantation – Epidemiology, Transplantation – Immunosuppression, Transplantation – Outcomes, Transplantation – Surgery.

Track 6: Pediatric Nephrology

Pediatric Nephrology is a specialization in the diagnosis and management of children with different types of acute and chronic kidney-related diseases. The division assesses and treats hypertension, proteinuria, hematuria, renal tubular acidosis, glomerulonephritis, nephrolithiasisand kidney disorders. Various kidney diseases like pediatric nephritisare clinically and hereditarily heterogeneous substance portrayed by backsliding, and interminable course with noteworthy dreariness and mortality coming about because of intricacies of the sickness itself, and its treatment.

This session covers Comprehensive Pediatric Nephrology, Clinical Pediatric Nephrology, Pediatric Renal Failure, Diagnostic Techniques, Advanced Therapies, Pediatric Renal Transplantation, Advances in Kidney Operation, Pediatric Kidney Dialysis, Pediatric Kidney Care and Pediatric Kidney Failure Diet.

Track 7: Kidney Cancer

Kidney cancer (also called renal adenocarcinoma or renal cell cancer) is a disease in which cancer cells are found within the lining of tubules in the kidney. We have two kidneys, behind the peritoneum one on each side of the spinal cord.. Small tubules in the kidneys purify the blood. Unabsorbed products are formed as urine. The urine then passes in to the urinary bladder through long tubes called ureter one coming from each kidney and joining the bladder. The urine is stored in bladder until it leaves the body through urethra. Kidney cancer perhaps remains clinically occult for most of its course. Immunomodulatory agents and targeted therapy are the standard care measures in metastatic disease patients. The most common malignant disease affecting kidney is kidney cancer. One of the most common causes for kidney cancer is smoking.

This track includes renal cell carcinoma, Types of renal cell carcinoma, renal cell carcinoma risk factors, Pathophysiology, Treatment and Outcomes, Chemotherapy, Immunotherapy, Targeted Therapy.

Track 8: Diabetic Kidney Disease

The diabetic kidney disease sometimes also called as diabetic nephropathy is a kidney related complication which may occur in people with diabetes mellitus. In diabetic nephropathy, filters of the kidneys and glomeruli become damaged. In this condition the kidneys leak abnormal quantity of protein from blood into the urine. If anyone has diabetes, the blood glucose, or blood sugar levels are very high. For prolonged period, this can damage the kidneys. The role of kidney is to clean your blood. In case they are damaged, waste and fluids accumulate in your blood with out of leaving from your body. If the kidney damage by diabetes is called diabetic nephropathy. Usually it starts long before you have notice symptoms. The beginning sign of it is small quantity of protein in urine. By urine test we can detect diabetic nephropathy or blood test can also determine the functioning of kidneys.

Diabetic kidney disease session covers diabetic nephropathy, diabetes mellitus (clinical), diabetic nephropathy–biomarkers of disease, intensive management of blood glucose, genetics of kidney disease–diabetic kidney disease, hypertension-clinical and experimental models, renal haemodynamics and vascular physiology.

Track 9: Cardiovascular Impacts of Kidney Diseases

Kidney diseases may also lead to heart disease or coronary illness because of which more than 20 million people die in the U.S.. Chronic kidney disease induces the risk of death from cardiovascular disease. Coronary disease results in more than half of all the deaths among individuals with CKD (Chronic kidney diseases). Indeed, even early stage of renal ailment puts a man in the risk zone of heart ailments and heart attacks and also heart disease-related death. Kidney dialysis patients who also have cardiovascular disease are more prone to death at about 10 to 30 times than in case of general cardiovascular patients. Diabetes and hypertension are two major risk factors for heart disease and chronic kidney disease. Kidney disease (acute kidney disease or chronic kidney disease) can induce the danger of cardiovascular illness, even with hypertension, high cholesterol and concurrent diabetes. Recent researches show that kidney diseases (renal diseases) induce heart disease, even before the kidneys are harmed to the point of requiring dialysis or transplantation

The session includes Cardiorenal syndrome, Effects of Cardiovascular Diseases on the Kidney, Effects of the Kidney on the Cardiovascular System, Diseases Affecting both Organs, Modification of Cardiac Drugs in Renal Disease, Hypertension, Kidney and Vascular Diseases, Etiology and classification, Essential hypertension, Hypophosphatemia, Hyperuricemia, Hyperkalemia, Hypertension, CKD and Diabetes, Reno vascular hypertension, Anti hypersensitive therapy, Recent Advances in Glomerular Disorders and Hypertension, Anaemia and Erythropoietin, Renal Osteodystrophy.

Track 10: Glomerular-Tubulointerstitial Disorders

Abnormal glomerular function may lead to damage of glomerulus components such as capillary endothelium, mesangium and epithelial basement membrane. In renal biopsy we can see cellular and structural pattern of glomeruli injury by using electron microscopy. As per the time of examination and the intensity of the lesions, in vascular diseases and glomerular ones we can identify tubular damage in glomerulus, interstitial inflammation, tubular atrophy, fibrosis or edema. Tubular or acute interstitial damage may lead to acute kidney failure, and prolonged changes are a best investigation parameter for irreversible lesions and then they are great anticipatory variables in vascular /glomerular diseases.

This session includes Glomerulonephritis, Glomerulopathy, Acute Pyelonephritis, Chronic Pyelonephritis, Acute Infectious Tubulointerstitial Nephritis (Tin), Tin Associated with Systemic Infection, Chronic Infectious Tin (Chronic Pyelonephritis) and Specific Renal Infections Xanthogranulomatous Pyelonephritis, Acute Interstitial Nephritis Associated to Drugs, Acute Tubular Necrosis and Other Tubular Changes.

Track 11: Fluid, Electrolytes, and Acid-Base

The renal system maintain homeostasis in the body by avoiding significant modifications in the balance of fluid electrolyte or acid–base parity until the Glomerular filtration rates are reduced down to below 25 ml/min because of a series of versatile changes, both renal and extra-renal. With a dynamic decrease in renal capacity, these components are overpowered by bringing about unsettling influences in water digestion system adding to hypernatremia and hypernatremia. The modified control of sodium transport causes irritated volume status including volume over-burden and exhaustion. The rate of Hyperkalemia and metabolic acidosis is more incessant in Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) with GFR below 10 ml/min. This session covers Disorders of Plasma Osmolality, Electrolyte Disorders in Diabetes Mellitus, Hydration in Kidney Disease Prevention, Disturbances of Plasma Sodium Concentration, Disturbances of Plasma Potassium Concentration, Disturbances of Plasma Calcium Concentration, Physiology of Acid-Base System, Metabolic Acidosis, Respiratory Acidosis, Metabolic Alkalosis and Respiratory Alkalosis.

Track 12: CKD -Mineral and Bone Disorders

The mineral and bone metabolism disorders (MBD) are common in patients with chronic kidney disease. Conventionally, these disorders are collectively termed as renal osteodystrophy. We can see mineral and bone disorders in patients with chronic kidney diseases, calcium and phosphorus levels in patient’s blood to be out of balance due to imbalance of hormones. This leads to kidney failure and dialysis.

The kidneys assume an essential part in maintaining sound bone mass and structure by adjusting phosphorus and calcium levels in the blood. Healthy kidneys actuate a type of vitamin D which a man expends in sustenance, transforming it into calcitriol, the dynamic variety of the vitamin. Calcitriol helps the kidney to maintain blood calcium levels and advances the arrangement of bone. The kidneys likewise expel additional phosphorus, adjusting levels of phosphorus and calcium in the blood. It also helps to maintain the best possible level of phosphorus in the blood keeping the bones healthy.

CKD -Mineral and Bone Disorders covers Mineral and bone disorder in chronic kidney disease, mineral and bone disorder in children with chronic kidney disease, cardiovascular calcification, treatment with active forms of vitamin D.

Track 13: Kidney and Bladder stones

Kidney or bladder stones are the crystals of calcium oxalate and uric acid. If a kidney stone obstructs the urethra or the ureter, it results in haematuria (blood in the urine), constant and severe pain in the back or side, fever, vomiting, or chills. Nephrolithiasis (Kidney stones): Minerals in urine form stones, which may generate into a size big enough to block the flow of urine. Most kidney stones pass through urine on their own but some kidney stones are too large and they cannot pass hence should be treated.

Bladder stones are hard masses of minerals in the urinary bladder. Bladder stones create when urine in the bladder becomes more concentrated, resulting in the minerals to take up shapes. Concentrated, stagnant urine is the regular after-effect of not having the capacity to totally exhaust the bladder. On the off chance that bladder stones are sufficiently small, they can go all alone with no detectable indications. In any case, once they get bigger, bladder stones can bring about incessant inclinations to urinate, excruciating or troublesome urination and haematuria.

This session includes Kidney stones, bladder stones, treatment, surgery, artificial kidney, diet for stones, transplant research.

Track 14: Urology/Urinary Tract Infections

This category includes diseases of the urinary system, prostate gland including the kidneys and bladder. The bladder or urethra usually is affected in any urinary tract infections, yet more genuine and serious infections include the kidney. A bladder disease may bring about pelvic torment, excessive inclination to urinate, torment with urination process and blood in the urine. Renal infection may bring about back agony, sickness, heaving and fever.

Urology/Urinary Tract Infections cover Urethritis, Pyelonephritis, Cancers of the Kidney and Genitourinary Tract, Diagnosis of Kidney and Urinary Tract Disorders, Disorders of Kidney Tubules, Disorders of Urination, Obstruction of the Urinary Tract, Stones in the Urinary Tract.

Track 15: Geriatric-Genetic Kidney Diseases

Some renal diseases like Polycystic Kidney Disease (PKD) are result of hereditary factors. In polycystic kidney disease, number of cysts develops in the kidneys. These cysts gradually replace the mass of kidney impairing kidney function and leading to renal failure.

Geriatric nephrology is a developing subspecialty for older patients. Patients having a longer life span may be prone to infections which quicken perpetual kidney diseases, and remain undetected until patients are defied with the sudden requirement for dialysis. Renal cystic illness includes an extensive variety of sickness elements. They can be named either (1) inherited or obtained or (2) systemic or renal limited illnesses that have the normal element of numerous renal pimples. Every malady substance contrasts in its presentation, anticipation, and administration. Renal sores are smooth-walled, liquid filled round structures framed by central out pouching of renal tubules. In any case, huge steps have been taken of late. For autosomal predominant and autosomal passive polycystic kidney sicknesses (ADPKD and ARPKD), a photo is beginning to rise. Waste products in the essential ciliary detecting systems, intracellular calcium control, and cell cyclic AMP (cAMP) aggregation, all appear to assume a part in the modified cell phenotype and capacities.

Geriatric-Genetic Kidney Diseases include the following topics: Inherited Kidney Diseases, Renal Cystic Diseases, Polycystic Kidney Disease (PKD), Kidney Disease in Elderly Diabetic Patients, Drug Dosing and Renal Toxicity in the Elderly Patient, Glomerular Disease in the Elderly, Hypertension, Chronic Kidney Disease, and the Elderly, Cardiovascular Disease in the Elderly with Kidney Disease, Vascular Disease in the Elderly.

Track 16: Renal Nutrition

Syndrome of protein-energy wasting consists of nutritional and metabolic abnormalities seen in chronic kidney disease. It is very essential to maintain maintain a healthy lifestyle for people with renal disorders, especially if that is accompanied by high blood pressure, diabetes, or both. Control and maintainence of normal blood glucose levels can help to prevent or postpone diabetic complications, including kidney diseases. What we eat and drink may help slow down kidney disease. Dieticians could guide patients on how to organise a diet that is safer for the kidneys by considering the concentrations of protein, potassium, phosphorus, sodium, and how to read food leaflets and labels.

Track 17: Nephrology Nursing

Nephrology nurses are engaged in caring for patients of all age groups who are experiencing, or are at risk of kidney disease.

Nephrology nursing involves both preventing disease and assessing the health needs of patients and their families. Care spans the life cycle and involves patients who are experiencing the real or threatened impact of acute or chronic kidney disease; therefore nephrology nurses must be well-educated, highly skilled, and motivated. These nurses also deal with every organ system in the body, bringing about a holistic approach in patient care which is both challenging and rewarding.

Driven by technological and educational advances, nephrology nursing continues to be a dynamic field with a wide variety of career opportunities for nurses at all levels.

Nephrology Nursing session covers Nephrology Nursing, Dialysis nursing, Cannulation, Home dialysis nursing, Kidney care nursing, Health Care and Management, Kidney Cancer & Tumor Nursing Pediatric Nursing, Surgical Nursing, Rehabilitation Nursing, Clinical Nursing, Nursing education, Critical care and Emergency Nursing, Nursing Management, Nurse Practitioner Updates.

Track 18: Diagnosis of Kidney Diseases

Healthy kidneys remove wastes and excess fluid from the blood. Blood and urine tests show how well the kidneys are functioning and how quickly body wastes are being eliminated. Urine tests can also detect whether the kidneys are leaking abnormal amounts of protein, a sign of kidney damage. Imaging tests use sound waves to get an image of the kidneys. It may be used to diagnose any form of abnormalities in size or position of the kidneys or for obstructions such as stones or tumors.

Track 19: Renal Pathology-Immunology

The kidneys are often targeted by pathogenic immune responses against renal auto antigens or by local manifestations of systemic autoimmunity. For the diagnosis renal pathologists use special tests and electron microscopes to detect the cells involved in diseases affecting the kidneys.

Kidney biopsies permit us to analyze renal disorders; review anticipations; help in resolving a precise restorative approach; and screen ailment movement in both local and allograft transplant kidneys. To maximally abuse renal biopsy examples, a blend of light, immunofluorescence and electron microscopy is used. Each microscopy requires distinctive strategies for fixation and preparing, so each renal biopsy centres are commonly separated into three sections. Contingent upon the length of the biopsy centre or suspected illness process; in any case, the strategy for partitioning the biopsy centre may be altered.

Track 20: Drugs for Kidney Diseases

Nephrologists will work to slow or control the reason behind kidney diseases. Depending on the root cause, some types of kidney disease can be treated. Frequently, though, chronic kidney disease has no prevention. In the event that the kidneys turn out to be seriously harmed, the patient may require treatment for end-stage kidney diseases. By then, dialysis or a kidney transplant is required. Since no particular in option and Ayurveda prescription for kidney can treat kidney disappointment successfully, the best technique is to join them. Immunotherapy, is an extraordinary leap forward in treating end-stage kidney sickness, and is an excellent and versatile blend of cutting edge western restorative advances and customary home grown drugs.
