Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Obstetric nephrology and reproductive care are increasingly gaining attention in our discipline, shifting from a "niche of curiosity" to full integration in the core curricula. However, evidence is still needed in this field, and the extreme heterogeneity of kidney diseases and the often unpredictable behavior of pregnancy make this field particularly suited for the application of personalized approaches. Within a context in which each experience is unique and valuable, we aim at opening this new Special Issue on different aspects of reproductive health in nephrology to collect experiences, discuss cases and points of view, and ultimately revise the literature.

Submissions for this Special Issue could relate, but are not limited to, the following topics: obstetric nephrology, sexual health, menopause, contraception, assisted fertilization, and overall issues linked to reproductive health in women with kidney diseases.

Prof. Dr. Giorgina Barbara Piccoli
Dr. Elena Zakharova
