The Nephrology Clinic of the University Campus Bio-Medico Hospital deals with the diagnostic and therapeutic framework of all major renal diseases, with or without renal insufficiency (primitive glomerular nephropathy or secondary to systemic autoimmune diseases, rare diseases with secondary renal involvement)

As regards chronic kidney failure, all forms are checked at the clinic, with particular attention to the prevention of the main diseases associated with them (co-morbidity) and to the correction of complications related to renal failure (states of anaemia, electrolyte disorders, hyperparathyroidism).

Ultrasound-guided renal biopsies are performed at the Nephrology outpatient clinic in collaboration with the Anatomical pathology Unit and Diagnostic imaging Unit.

In addition, diagnosis and treatment of hypertension (essential or secondary) are carried out, also through 24-hour Ambulatory blood pressure monitoring (ABPM)

Finally, the clinic provides a consultancy service to the other specialist areas of the Campus Bio-Medico Hospital, and in particular to the Anesthesia, Intensive care and pain management Unit, for indication and options of continuous Renal Replacement Therapy in patients with acute renal failure admitted to intensive care.
