Please join colleagues and experts November 11-12 at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor for this collaborative and informative conference which will bring multi-disciplinary experts together to identify best practices in the clinical management of these unique pediatric patients.
Pediatric renovascular hypertension secondary to renal artery stenosis and abdominal aortic coarctation is exceedingly rare and risks significant morbidity and mortality. The pathophysiology and etiology of both remain poorly defined. Moreover, the low frequency of this disease limits existing data to institutional series and anecdotal case reports.
The First International Symposium on Pediatric Renovascular Hypertension will feature an international array of distinguished physicians and researchers, highlighting the best practices in patient care, recent discovery and ongoing research. The symposium will feature a keynote talk delivered by Harry Dietz, MD, of the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine.
The conference is organized by a committee of physicians in the United States, Canada and the UK. It is sponsored by the University of Michigan’s Taubman Institute, which was established in 2007 to support the work of clinician-scientists.
Admission to the conference is free. Breakfast, lunch and coffee breaks will be served.
Please register at our Eventbrite site to reserve a space and receive periodic conference updates.
All conference sessions will take place at the U-M Kellogg Eye Center, 1000 Wall Street, Ann Arbor, Michigan, 48105.
