The report from the 2014 KDIGO Controversies Conference on ADPKD has been published.
The Conference was held in Edinburgh, United Kingdom on January 17-19, 2014. Drs. Vicente E. Torres (Mayo Clinic, USA) and Olivier Devuyst (University of Zurich, Switzerland) co-chaired this conference.
The objective of this conference was to assess the current state of knowledge related to the evaluation, management and treatment of ADPKD, to summarize the outstanding knowledge gaps, and to propose a research agenda to resolve standing controversial issues.
We hope that the next step will be to develop a global guideline on ADPKD and help to harmonize and standardize the care of ADPKD patients worldwide.
