Renal Thrombotic Microangiopathy: An Interview

Thrombotic microangiopathy (TMA), a pathological lesion observed in a wide spectrum of diseases, is triggered by endothelial injury and/or dysfunction. In a recent Review published in AJKD, Dominique Suzanne Genest and colleagues reviewed the clinical presentation and pathologic hallmarks of renal-limited forms of TMA, disease-specific mechanisms that contribute to TMA lesions, diagnostic approach, and treatment strategies, and the potential role for emerging therapies.

AJKDBlog’s Interviews Editor Timothy Yau @Maximal_Change recently sat down with colleagues Anuja Java @anuja_java and Anna Vinnikova @KidneyWars to discuss these topics further.
