What others say about this masterclass

Dr. Bohdan Bidovanets
Ternopil Regional Oncology Clinic
“All the information offered at the masterclass was very interesting. The masterclass highlights for me were coverage on the kidney transplantation; renal and non-renal tumours (both in donor and recipient); technical aspects of the orthotropic transplantation and vascular difficulties; and choosing the appropriate kidney preservation option.”

Dr. Fábio Sepúlveda Lima
“The talk on the present status of protocols of non-heart beating donors in Europe was definitely the most impressive. The development and spread of robotic kidney transplantation was also very interesting. We hope that more patients could be submitted to minimally invasive procedures. The role of pulsatile hypothermic machine perfusion as a prognostic factor of kidney graft function did change my practice.”

Dr. Ramiro Cabello Benavente
Hospital Universitario Fundación Jiménez Díaz
“The highlights of the masterclass included the basic management of LifePort machine perfusion; current updates on kidney biopsy (i.e. pre-transplant biopsy as a baseline, perform two cores with 16G needle, obtain >10 glomerulus and two arteries); examining the biopsy under the microscope with the pathologist, performing the biopsy early and checking if patients had any previous treatment(s); and the focus on oncologic issues (e.g. tumours in kidney transplant donors and recipients).”

Dr. Oscar Rodríguez Faba
Fundació Puigvert
“My top highlights were when the masterclass covered the improvement of the procurement techniques in non-heart beating donors; implementation of the robotic surgery; and design of protocols for management of urological tumours in renal transplant recipients.”
