Leonard Cohen International Event in 2008 PowerPoint Updated to Refer to 2016 Event

  1. 1. A Dose of Cohen: A Doctor Afield Kim Solez, MD, FRCPC (Pathology) with Peter North (Executive Producer, Leonard Cohen International Event, July 25-27, 2008 at the Winspear Concert Hall and Westin Hotel)
  2. 2. Mixing and Matching Medicine and Culture  Beginning with most familiar medical topic for me, the Banff Classification of Kidney Transplant Pathology.  Diverging to show how in 2002 in preparation for the 2003 Banff meeting in Scotland I suddenly ventured into the realm of Leonard Cohen events.  Presenting the history of those Leonard Cohen events, the way my experience with organizing medical meetings shaped Leonard Cohen events, and the way they in turn influenced medical initiatives.  Description of plans for July 23-28, 2008 Edmonton International Leonard Cohen Event. (with Peter North)  Conclusions.
  3. 3. Communications - Getting the Word Out  Since 1997 I have headed NKF cyberNephrology with resources, email discussion groups and websites, that reach 8,000 people.  Technofuturism material published on ThinkerNet Blog http://www.internetevolution.com that receives 300,000 visitors a month. My pieces have been the “editor’s pick” there.
  4. 4. Lessons from the Arts brought to Medicine Critical Path for Event Planning/Philosophy/Writing  ARTS: Keeping track of activities via hand held devices. Security considerations.  MEDICINE: Hand held devices ideal for securely keeping track of progress of kidney biopsy light microscopy, immunofluorescence, electron microscopy.  ARTS: Philosophical influences on culture.  MEDICINE: Philosophical influences on medicine understudied except for bioethics. Gene chip vs. conventional pathology.  ARTS: Pride in writing as writing.  MEDICINE: Pride in writing as writing.
  5. 5. Promotion/Capturing the Imagination of the Public  ARTS: Promotion. Media attention. Capturing the imagination of the public is important.  MEDICINE: Promotion. Media attention. Capturing the imagination of the public is important.
  6. 6. Lessons from Medicine brought to the Arts Leonard Cohen remarks  “Living life with microscopic precision”
  7. 7. Meetings - A Waste of Time?  “Medical meetings are just social events. Nothing important happens at them. They are a waste of time. You should avoid organizing medical meetings.” - Robert H. Heptinstall, M.D.  I did not follow this advice. Doctors need to be socialized, humanized. Organized my first Acute Renal Failure Symposium in 1982, published as a book in 1984 Acute Renal Failure: Correlations Between Morphology and Function. Many others since then.  My work on acute renal failure in the native kidney since 1972 gradually led to an interest in acute renal failure in the transplanted kidney.
  8. 8. Background – The Banff Classification  Acute renal failure in the transplanted kidney is a high stakes situation  Many different entities have the same clinical presentation:  ATN, acute rejection, CsA, FK506 toxicity  misdiagnosis can rapidly lead to loss of the graft or sometimes the patient
  9. 9. Background – The Banff Classification  In 1990 all standard textbooks were inaccurate in interpretation of kidney transplant biopsies  Suggesting, for example, that arteritis meant that the kidney was doomed and antirejection treatment should be abandoned  It became imperative for the field to correct this and standardize interpretation
  10. 10. he Banff Schema was first developed by aby a The Banff Schema was first developed roup of pathologists, nephrologists, and group of pathologists, nephrologists, and ansplant surgeonsat a a meetingBanff Canada transplant surgeons at meeting in in Banff Canada ugust 2-4, 1991. August 2-4, 1991. It has continued to evolve through meetings every two years and has become the worldwide standard for interpretation of transplant biopsies.
  11. 11. DIAGNOSTIC CATEGORIES       1. Normal 2. Antibody-mediated rejection, 3. Borderline changes: ‘Suspicious’ for acute cellular rejection 4. T-cell-mediated rejection (may coincide with categories 2 and 5 and 6) 5. Sclerosis, interstitial fibrosis, and tubular atrophy, no evidence of any specific etiology 6. Other Changes not considered to be due to rejection
  12. 12. LESION SCORING (0-3+) Transplant glomerulitis - g Chronic transplant glomerulopathy - cg Interstitial Inflammation - i (ti) Interstitial fibrosis - ci Tubulitis - t Tubular atrophy - ct Vasculitis, intimal arteritis - v Fibrous intimal thickening - cv Arteriolar hyaline thickening - ah (aah) Mesangial matrix increase - mm Peritubular capillary cell accumulation - ptc
