Algorithm to Dx Renal Stones
By Hamed S. on 08. March 2017 for Nephrolithiasis

Good talk which could be improved by including an algorithm to investigate patients with suspected renal stones

 
Fantastic talk
By Hamed S. on 07. March 2017 for Membranoproliferative Glomerulonephritis (MPGN)

Have found this talk immensely useful in understanding the different types of MPGN as well as diabetic nephropathy and the potential underlying mechanism. It would have been good to further talk about the management of latter including blood pressure goals.

 
Good summary
By Hamed S. on 07. March 2017 for Kidney Disorders: RPGN, Goodpasture Syndrome, SLE & ANCA

Found the explanations clear and to the point. I've always struggled with GN and I think I'm slowly begin to appreciate this topic
