Paediatric Nephrology

Paediatric Nephrology specializes in the diagnosis and management of children with a variety of acute and chronic kidney related disorders. Paediatric Nephrology evaluates and treats hypertension, haematuria, proteinuria, renal tubular acidosis, nephrolithiasis, glomerulonephritis, and kidney failure. It also provides comprehensive care for paediatric patients with end-stage kidney disease, including care to patients undergoing peritoneal dialysis, haemodialysis and follow-up care after kidney transplantation.

Clinical Nephrology

Clinical Nephrology involves medical treatment of kidney diseases and conditions. This may entail working with other areas of the body that also are influenced by the kidneys. Kidney problems can cause electrolyte imbalances in the bloodstream, resulting in serious symptoms including excess fluid in the tissues, mental confusion or irregular heartbeat. Clinical nephrology also can help patients who have high blood pressure, because hypertension can be destructive to the kidneys.

Acute Kidney Failure

Acute kidney failure occurs when kidneys suddenly become unable to filter waste products from blood. When kidneys lose their filtering ability, dangerous levels of wastes may accumulate, and blood's chemical makeup may get out of balance. Kidneys are the organs that help filter waste products from the blood. They are also involved in regulating blood pressure, electrolyte balance, and red blood cell production in the body.

Renal Transplantation

A kidney transplant is a surgical procedure performed to replace a diseased kidney with a healthy kidney from another person. The kidney may come from a deceased organ donor or from a living donor. Family members or individuals who are unrelated but make a good match may be able to donate one of their kidneys. This type of transplant is called a living transplant. Individuals who donate a kidney can live healthy lives with the remaining kidney.

Dialysis

Dialysis is a treatment that does some of the things done by healthy kidneys. It is needed when kidneys can no longer take care of body's needs. It is a process of filtering and removing waste products from the bloodstream.

Renal Replacement

Renal replacement therapy has a vital role in the treatment of severe acute kidney injury and end-stage renal disease. Renal replacement therapy replaces non-endocrine kidney function in patients with renal failure and is occasionally used for some forms of poisoning. Techniques include intermittent haemodialysis, continuous hemofiltration and haemodialysis, and peritoneal dialysis. All modalities exchange solute and remove fluid from the blood, using dialysis and filtration across permeable membranes.

Renal Management

Appropriate renal management can help to prevent or delay the progression of the illness to its end stages when dialysis or transplantation is required to sustain life. Effective renal management can also help to control symptoms or side effects, such as high blood pressure, loss of appetite, nausea, tiredness and swelling of the hands, face and feet. Renal Management should be done in conjunction with your general practitioner, kidney specialist or specialist nurse and allied health team. Renal Management often involves addressing factors related to nutrition, fitness, medication and spirit.

Alport Syndrome

Alport Syndrome is an inherited disease that primarily affects the glomeruli, the tiny tufts of capillaries in the kidneys that filter wastes from the blood. It encompasses a group of inherited, heterogeneous disorders involving the basement membranes of the kidney and frequently affecting the cochlea and eye as well and characterized by glomerulonephritis, end-stage kidney disease, and hearing loss.

Renal Calculi

Renal calculi are solid masses made of crystals. Kidney stones originate in kidneys, but can be found at any point in  urinary tract. The urinary tract includes the kidneys, ureters, bladder, and urethra. The stones form in the urine collecting area of the kidney and may range in size from tiny to staghorn stones the size of the renal pelvis itself. The pain is usually of sudden onset, very severe and colicky, not improved by changes in position, radiating from the back, down the flank, and into the groin. Nausea and vomiting are common.

Renal Insufficiency

Renal insufficiency is poor function of the kidneys that may be due to a reduction in blood-flow to the kidneys caused by renal artery disease. Normally, the kidneys regulate body fluid and blood pressure, as well as regulate blood chemistry and remove organic waste. Proper kidney function may be disrupted, however, when the arteries that provide the kidneys with blood become narrowed, a condition called renal artery stenosis. Some patients with renal insufficiency experience no symptoms or only mild symptoms.

Kidney Cysts

Kidney cysts are sacs that are filled with fluid within their kidneys. The exact cause of simple kidney cysts is not known but they tend to be more common as people age. Simple kidney cysts rarely cause problems and are different from polycystic kidney disease. Kidney cysts that are causing symptoms or blocking the normal flow of blood or urine through the kidney may need to be treated using a procedure called sclerotherapy, where the cyst is punctured using a long needle, guided by ultrasound.

End Stage Renal Disease

End stage renal disease (ESRD) is the last stage of chronic kidney disease (CKD). When CKD, polycystic kidney disease (PKD) or other kidney diseases develop into ESRD, dialysis or a kidney transplant is necessary to live. Kidneys function at only below 10 to 15% of their normal capacity; they cannot effectively do their job, such as remove waste or excess fluids.

Lupus Nephritis

Lupus nephritis is kidney inflammation caused by systemic lupus erythematosus. It is an autoimmune disease, a disorder in which the body’s immune system attacks the body’s own cells and organs. Up to 60% of people with systemic lupus erythematosus are diagnosed with lupus nephritis, which can lead to significant illness and even death.

Glomerulonephritis

Glomerulonephritis is damage to the tiny filters inside the kidneys. It's often caused by body's immune system attacking healthy body tissue. Glomerulonephritis doesn't cause any noticeable symptoms and is often diagnosed when blood or urine tests are carried out for another reason. The condition is characterized by irreversible and progressive glomerular and tubulointerstitial fibrosis, ultimately leading to a reduction in the glomerular filtration rate and retention of uremic toxins.

Renal Papillary Necrosis

Renal papillary necrosis is a disorder of the kidneys in which all or part of the renal papillae die. The renal papillae are the areas where the openings of the collecting ducts enter the kidney and where the urine flows into the ureters. Renal papillary necrosis usually occurs with analgesic nephropathy.

Nephrosclerosis

Nephrosclerosis is a progressive disease of the kidneys that results from sclerosis of the small blood vessels in the kidneys. It is most commonly associated with hypertension or diabetes and can lead to kidney failure. This condition is caused by hypertension. Hypertension can be present in a person for 20 to 30 years without evidence of kidney involvement; such individuals usually die of other effects of hypertension such as congestion of blood in the heart, hardening of the heart tissue, or cerebral haemorrhage.

Renal Hypertension

Renal hypertension, also called renovascular hypertension, is elevated blood pressure caused by kidney disease. It can usually be controlled by blood pressure drugs. It is high blood pressure due to narrowing of the arteries that carry blood to the kidneys. This condition is also called renal artery stenosis. Renal artery stenosis is a narrowing or blockage of the arteries that supply blood to the kidneys.

Renal Carcinoma

Renal cell carcinoma is a type of kidney cancer that starts in the lining of tubules in the kidney. Renal cell carcinoma is the most common type of kidney cancer in adults. It occurs most often in men ages 50 to 70. Renal cell carcinoma, is also called hypernephroma, adenocarcinoma of renal cells, or renal or kidney cancer. It is the most common kind of kidney cancer found in adults.

Kidney Neoplasms

Neoplasms or tumours of the kidney, renal cell carcinoma is the most common neoplastic lesion of the kidney, accounting for approximately 85% of all kidney neoplasms. The vast majority of these tumours are adenocarcinoma.

Acute Kidney Injury

It is an abrupt loss of kidney function that develops within 7 days. Generally it occurs because of damage to the kidney tissue caused by decreased renal blood flow (renal ischemia) from any cause (e.g. low blood pressure), exposure to substances harmful to the kidney, an inflammatory process in the kidney, or an obstruction of the urinary tract which impedes the flow of urine.

Kidney Biopsy

A kidney biopsy involves taking one or more samples of  kidney to look at with special microscopes. The microscopes make it possible to see the samples in greater detail. Some kidney problems can often be found with blood and urine tests, a sonogram or other special x-rays, and a physical exam rather than a biopsy. But in some individuals with certain types of kidney disease, and those with a kidney transplant that is not working well, a correct diagnosis can only be made with a kidney biopsy.

Hydronephrosis

Hydronephrosis is a condition where one or both kidneys become stretched and swollen as a result of a build-up of urine inside the kidneys. Unilateral hydronephrosis is swelling of one kidney due to a backup of urine. Hydronephrosis occurs as the result of a disease. Hydronephrosis can result from anatomic or functional processes interrupting the flow of urine. This interruption can occur anywhere along the urinary tract from the kidneys to the urethral meatus. The rise in ureteral pressure leads to marked changes in glomerular filtration, tubular function, and renal blood flow.

Lobar Nephronia

Lobar nephronia refers to an intermediate stage between acute pyelonephritis and renal abscess, and is a focal region of interstitial nephritis. It appears as a wedge of poorly perfused renal parenchyma, without a cortical rim sign. It usually presents with fevers and flank pain. In the general population it is well described in children.

Horseshoe Kidney

Horseshoe kidney, also known as ren arcuatus, renal fusion or super kidney, is a congenital disorder affecting about 1 in 400 people, more common in men. In this disorder the patient's kidneys fuse together to form a horseshoe-shape during development in the womb. The fused part is the isthmus of the horseshoe kidney.
