ANZSIN is a sub-group of the Australia and New Zealand Society of Nephrology. We are an Australia and New Zealand (ANZ) based special interest group in Interventional Nephrology. We encourage the setting of standards, training, experience/expertise along with safe and effective practice within Interventional Nephrology for Nephrologists primarily: addressing Renal Biopsy, Cuffed and non-Cuffed Catheter Insertion, Peritoneal Dialysis Catheter Insertion (nephrological), and Arterio-Venous Fistula formation (e.g. snuff box) and complication diagnosis and correction (e.g. Angioplasty and Stenting).
The Australia and New Zealand Dialysis and Transplant Registry (ANZDATA) collects and reports the incidence, prevalence and outcome of dialysis treatment and kidney transplantation for patients with end stage kidney disease across Australia and New Zealand. The Registry was established in 1977 from the merger of separate dialysis and transplant registries to provide information on the patterns and outcomes of dialysis and kidney transplantation, and to support safety and quality activities and the planning of appropriate health services.
