Event description

Description

Please join colleagues and experts at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, November 11-12, 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.

Attendance at the conference -- including breakfast, breaks and lunch -- is free of charge. Please register to assist with logistics and receive program updates. Follow on Twitter @PediRVH2019 for more news!

Visit the conference website UmichPediRVHSymposium.org for the draft program and speaker list.

A lblock of rooms has been reserved at Ann Arbor's Graduate hotel, and shuttle service will be provided to the conference venue. Conference attendees are responsible for their own travel and lodging costs.

The symposium is organized by a committee of physicians in the United States, Canada and the UK. Financial and administrative support is provided by the University of Michigan's Taubman Institute, which was established in 2007 to support the work of clinician-scientists.
