EAN 2017 | Cognitive performance stays stable in chronic kidney disease patients over a 2-year period

Janine Gronewold, PhD from University Hospital Essen, Essen, Germany discusses results of a study on cognitive performance in chronic kidney disease patients, which showed that cognitive performance remained stable during a 2-year follow-up period. Dr Gronewold outlines possible reasons for this observation and the importance of performing complex neuropsychological assessment in order to be able to assess mild cognitive decline.
Recorded at the 2017 Congress of the European Academy of Neurology (EAN) in Amsterdam, the Netherlands.
