Vor die Therapie setzten die Gotter die Diagnose. Otto NiigeJi Renal biopsy has decisively enriched renal diagnostics. Kidney illnesses should be monitored in the course of their whole direction, and new options - comparable to immunofluorescence and electron microscopy - will be systematically utilized, leading to novel insights into the morphogenesis, pathogenesis, and etiology of kidney lesions. those insights, in flip, have served as new beginning issues, within the spirit of the citation above, for the establishment of causal treatment by means of the clinician. This paintings offers our findings in accordance with two decades of expertise in comparing renal biopsies. As of the top of 1974, our computer-supported, systematic medical, morphologic, and follow-up assessment of case fabric consisted of over 2000 biopsies, together with 679 tested via electron microscopy and four hundred through immunofluorescence microscopy. the following 500 biopsies (400 studied by way of electron microscopy and three hundred through immunofluorescence) have been con sidered qualitatively simply. that allows you to improve qualitative findings with quantitative information, it used to be essential to devise new equipment for quantifying electron-microscopic findings. also, we tried to correlate cyto good judgment and immunofluorescent observations to combine the remoted findings of electron microscopy right into a important cytologic development of reactions. We additionally tried to judge the virtually overwhelming flood of courses, specially these showing in the final 10 years. the assumption for this publication was once conceived a decade in the past. at the moment, despite the fact that, our personal event in renal biopsy diagnostics appeared inadequate to sup port this kind of significant undertaking.
