ABSTRACT
Objectives and study: To find out that characteristics of the scientific presentations given at the AENP's meetings in the past 20 years. Material and Methods: We reviewed in the scientific programs of the AENP's meetings of the past 20 years: number of presentations, number of participating institutions, institutions that provided the majority of the presentations, presentation format, number of studies involving experimental nephrology, topics most commonly presented. Results: There have been 1,119 presentations in the past 20 years, 45/year between 88-92 and 67/year between 03-07. Ninety-one institutions participated in the meetings, 17/year between 88-92 and 34/year between 03- 07. Pediatric Nephrology unit from the H. La Paz (Madrid) contributed the most presentations. Poster presentations were accepted at the ANEP meetings after 1995. Since then, 369 of the 815 presentations followed this format. Between 88-07 only 16 presentations dealt with experimental nephrology. The most common topics of presentation waere glomerular disease (203) and urinary tract infection/VUR (132). Fifty-one presentations dealt with dialysis (almost 2/3 peritoneal). Transplantation was the topic of 123 presentations. Of the 21 presentations on molecular genetics only one happened before 1998. Conclusions: The poster is a useful alternative in scientific presentations which has allowed an increase in presentations, authors and institutions participating in the ANEP meetings. The main topic of presentation was glomerular disease. The frequency of presentations dealing with transplantation has increased in the last years. The past decade has seen more presentations on molecular genetics, but presentations dealing with experimental nephrology are still infrequent.
