I really enjoyed the membranous nephropathy session (happy 10th birthday PLA2R) at #KidneyWk, and here were some highlights:
@LaurenceHBeckJ1 PLA2R titers fall 3-6 months before reduction in proteinuria in MN. PLA2R titers are used as a secondary endpoint for both the GEMRITUX trial and MENTOR trials #KidneyWk.
@LaurenceHBeckJ1 Treat patients with PLA2R positive MN until the ELISA is <2 or the IFA is negative (more sensitive) #KidneyWk

1/ sGLT2i educational symposia #KidneyWk #Tweetorial. Trying this out for @AJKDonline rather than a blog post. This is a live tweet thread of the info from this great session.

1/ Welcome to the Saturday Poster session at #KidneyWk. On behalf of Hector and Edgar, I’d like to welcome you to our tweet thread on • Gender disparities in #SoMe and #MedEd•. You can view our poster (&🗣w/us) live TODAY from 10-12 PM (#27) or learn more about our work below
2/ #SoMe is exploding in medicine & #Nephrology leads the way in many metrics & most certainly in #SoMe research. Many #SoMe *users* are becoming active #SoMe *educators* & share valuable educational information to the larger online community.…
3/ Concurrently, there is a greater push to equalize the way we share knowledge. Gender is an area in need of equalization. More men than women are offered presenting &/or moderating opportunities. This imbalance negatively effects both female *and* male learners. #KidneyWk

Cognitive impairment: 20-40% prevalence in ESKD.

Difficulties with numeracy strongly associated with cognitive performance.

One thing I love about #KidneyWk in a brief tweetorial #AskASN
#KidneyWk and @ASNKidney never created a social media team or official social media ambassadors to cover the meeting.
So much of medicine is permission based, but there is no one to ask permission of off you want to tweet about #KidneyWk. There are no social media credentials or badge needed to complain about a speaker, a #manel, or Comic Sans on a slide #AskASN

•PLEX in ANCA vasculitis @ #kidneywk 1/n
"pheresis" = remove forcibly
1914: PLEX used to treat toxemia
1970s: PLEX reported to be used to treat Goodpasture's syndrome
•PLEX in ANCA vasculitis @ #kidneywk 2/n
PLEX comes in 2 modalities: filtration (blood pumped through a filter) and centrifugation (blood separated into components and then the selected component is aspirated)
•PLEX in ANCA vasculitis @ #kidneywk 3/n
Filtration: certain size molecules excluded, requires central vein access, requires heparin (systemic anticoagulation)
Centrifugation: no size restrictions, lower blood flow and can use a peripheral vein access, can use citrate
