The CREBA offers a course to perfect techniques in interventional nephrology
Coordinated by specialists from the Arnau de Vilanova University Hospital in Lleida
The Centre for Applied Biomedical Experimental Research (CREBA) is hosting the 3rd edition of the 'Interventional Nephrology' course on 22 and 23 June. This course, which has not been held since 2018, will allow professionals in the field of nephrology to learn and improve interventional techniques with the help of real-time colour Doppler ultrasound, to improve professional confidence and patient safety.
The training is coordinated by the haemodialysis nephrologist at the Arnau de Vilanova University Hospital in Lleida, Felipe Sarró, and by the head of the nephrology department at the Arnau de Vilanova University Hospital in Lleida, Maria Luisa Martín. At the end of the course, the students, around 20 people, will have mastered the following techniques:
- Real-time colour Doppler ultrasound.
- Study of central venous trunks and ultrasound-guided insertion (in real time) of tunelitzat catheter for haemodialysis.
- Insertion of peritoneal dialysis catheter using two techniques: ultrasound-guided puncture and surgical technique.
- Performance of percutaneous ultrasound-guided renal biopsy (in real time).
The course is accredited by the Catalan Council for Continuing Education of Health Professions and the Commission for Continuing Education of the National Health System.
CREBA is dedicated to research and training in the field of Biomedicine. Its facilities include teaching and simulation classrooms, as well as four experimental operating theatres equipped for open and laparoscopic surgery and other interventional techniques. One of them has 5 operating tables, which makes it ideal for this type of training activities in new technologies.
