Pediatric nephrology and urology focuses on the kidneys, ureters, bladder, and urethra in children, treating disorders that range from mild to serious. Specialists in this field provide care and management to children with various kidney diseases, including nephrotic syndrome, urinary tract infections, vesicoureteral reflux, hematuria, proteinuria, hypertension, electrolyte disorders, complications of kidney stones, and enuresis (bed-wetting) disorders. In some cases, a urologist may be required to perform a procedural/surgical intervention to correct a congenital deformity or remove a large kidney stone, for instance. In advanced cases of renal failure, pediatric nephrologists will also guide dialysis treatments and management of long-term renal complications.
Very well explained and simplified. I would definitely recommend Lecturio presentations to my fellow medical students.
Professor Alverson has an excellent rendition style. Pleasant rhythm, voice, and pause. His mastery of the subject seems obvious to me. I learn so much from his lectures each time. Thank you, Professor!
Excellent lecture. The differential diagnosis is much better than what I've been taught so far. Thanks!
Excellent lecture: simple, clear and concise. Thank you! It's good to have the rule of thumb for the IV hydration.
