Curbside Consults

We often have asked these questions? and some of them have no answers in the literature and some have long winded opinions- and that's it.  These are practical questions that have come up at almost every institution. Take a look at some of them?
1. Do Dialysis patients need colonoscopies and mammograms?
2. When and how should immunosuppression be tapered in a failed transplanted kidney?
3. Should we give erythropoiesis stimulating agents to a dialysis patient who has cancer?
4.  When should a nephrectomy be done in a transplanted patient with a failed kidney?
5.  Is there a higher mortality in certain dialysis shifts?

Seminars in Dialysis August 2011 issue has these questions answered along with more such scenarios. This special issues is fantastic. It covers some major issues that we face all the time.
