Interventional Nephrology Forum 

INFORMnephro image

Interventional Nephrology has come a long way – from a fringe group of Nephrologists trying to do interventions themselves, to an established, subspecialty over the years. It is still peculiar, as it has no definite boundaries or proper guidelines and most interventionalists are only self taught. All these lead to longer learning curve and vulnerability to criticism. Although the International Society of Nephrology(ISN), Indian Society of Nephrology, American Society for Diagnostic and Interventional Nephrology (ASDIN) and initiatives like AVATAR are doing the best to promote this much needed field, there are no ongoing continuous training programs in India. This forum, INFORM, if groomed well, can look up to fill up some of the gaps!

Next INForm web meeting, on 29 OCT 2022… 

Dear friends,

Last meeting of the INForm meeting was held on 24th September 8 pm. We had very interesting presentations , relevant to day to day practice. The theme was – ‘Plumbing works in Nephrology’

With Tunnelled Catheter insertion  becoming daily affair, bleeding from Tunnel is not uncommon. Dr.Adrian  demonstrated bolstering dressing of the tunnel to arrest bleeding.

Post renal biopsy bleeding can be unnerving to any Nephrologist. Dr. Senguttuvan Pandian   described a novel percutaneous method to arrest the bleeding.

Declotting dialysis catheters and managing thrombosed fistulas are increasingly entering into the realm of Nephrology practice. With many TPA options available, we need better understanding of the different anticoagulants and  Dr. Gireesh  deep diving into this topic told us how to select the appropriate molecule. 

Prof. Kasi Visweswaran and Dr. K.Samapathkumar were the guests of honour. They  chaired the meeting and shared their experiences.

Recordings of the meeting is in our Youtube channel.
