Autosomal Dominant Polycystic Kidney Disease (ADPKD)

The KDIGO Clinical Practice Guideline for Management of Autosomal Dominant Polycystic Kidney Disease (ADPKD) represents the first KDIGO guideline on this subject. The goal of the guideline is to generate a useful resource for clinicians and patients by providing actionable recommendations with infographics based on a rigorous, formal systematic literature review. Another aim is to propose research recommendations for areas in which there are gaps in knowledge.

This Clinical Practice Guideline is based upon the best information available at the time of publication. The recommendations are designed to provide information and assist decision-making. They are not intended to define a standard of care, and should not be construed as one. Neither should they be interpreted as prescribing an exclusive course of management. Variations in practice will inevitably and appropriately occur when clinicians take into account the needs of individual patients, available resources, and limitations unique to an institution or type of practice. Every health care professional making use of this Guideline is responsible for evaluating the appropriateness of applying them in the setting of any particular clinical situation. The recommendations for research contained within this document are general and do not imply a specific protocol.
