Program Description

Although autosomal-dominant polycystic kidney disease (ADPKD) is a rare disorder, it can have a devastating effect on patients. As morphological disorganization of renal tissue progresses, large, fluid-filled cysts develop, increasing kidney size and ultimately compromising kidney function. In this Case Clinic, a leading expert illustrates the gamut of ADPKD management, from recognition of the disorder, which typically begins insidiously, through current treatment protocols. Topics include screening and genetic counseling, laboratory testing and imaging studies for diagnosis and disease monitoring, development of a treatment plan that addresses concomitant cardiovascular risk factors, and implementation of tolvaptan therapy, a novel vasopressin receptor antagonist that can slow ADPKD progression but requires close monitoring of liver function.

Intended Audience

Nephrologists, pediatric nephrologists, internists, family physicians, physician assistants, and nurse practictioners

Educational Objectives

After completing the activity, the participant should be better able to:

  • Identify patients with autosomal-dominant polycystic kidney disease (ADPKD) by recognizing the signs and symptoms of the disease and instituting a complete diagnostic workup
  • Plan a clinical strategy that aims to mitigate progression of ADPKD as much as possible with available, evidence-based modalities
  • Anticipate emerging therapies with vasopressin type 2 (V2) receptor antagonists that can delay progression in ADPKD through an understanding of ADPKD pathobiology, therapeutic targets, and recent clinical trials
