Dear colleagues, dear friends

It is our great pleasure to invite you to participate in the 8th CROATIAN SYMPOSIUM on Renal Replacement Therapy, DiaTransplant 2021, organized by the University Hospital Center Rijeka, Faculty of Medicine Rijeka University School of Medicine, Croatian Society of Nephrology, Dialysis and Transplantation of Croatian Medical Association and Croatian Association of Nurses – Nephrology, Dialysis and Transplantation Section, under auspices of the Croatian Academy of Medical Sciences and the University of Rijeka.

We are witnessing the circumstances in which we find ourselves and the fact that the Covid-19 pandemic has significantly changed our lives, including the inability to hold professional gatherings in the way we used to. DiaTransplant 2021, which is held live, is an opportunity to reunite after a long time, eager not only for education but also for socializing and exchanging experiences. DiaTransplant 2021 will be held in Opatija from October 14-17, 2021 in accordance with all epidemiological measures prescribed by the National Civil Protection Headquarters and the Government of the Republic of Croatia.

We truly believe in the Symposium success because of the selected topics which are of special interest in the field of Renal Replacement Therapy. In the scientific programme you will find many distinguished nephrologists and other medical specialists in the multidisciplinary fields connected with nephrology.

This Symposium, already traditional, is going to be a permanent witness of the new scientific developments. Wherever you work, use the opportunity to break away from daily routine and to discover new approaches, connect to colleagues and get back home full of new knowledge, ideas and work motivation.

The emphasis will be on ”state of art” lectures and clinical aspects of hemodialysis, peritoneal dialysis and kidney transplantation.

DiaTransplant 2021 is going to bring together distinguished clinicians and experts from Croatia and abroad to present and discuss recent discoveries in these fields.

A special feature of DiaTransplant 2021 is the celebration of the 50th anniversary of the first kidney transplant in Rijeka and Croatia, which was performed by the expert team of the hospital in Sušak on January 30, 1971 under the leadership of Prof. Vinko Frančišković, MD, PhD.

You are heartily invited to contribute to the success of DiaTransplant 2021 with a presentation of your work and your abstracts are very much appreciated. Young colleagues and students are specially invited to participate in the scientific programme.

Of course we also want to emphasize the beauty of Opatija, the pearl of Mediterranean, offering friendly and welcoming atmosphere within its historic architecture and rich culture.

Greetings from heart to all of you until we meet in Opatija!

President of DiaTransplant 2021
Prof. Sanjin Rački, MD, PhD
