Protected: Interview with Vito Cagli: his life as a nephrologist and more


This interview describes the numerous and important contributions that Vito Cagli, who was born in Ancona in 1926, has given to the Italian Nephrology and to other fields of Medicine. These contributions, that are very poorly known today, were produced especially in the years in which Cagli worked as deputy director of the Centre for the Investigation and Treatment of Hypertension and Renal Diseases at Policlinico Hospital Umberto I in Rome. This interview also describes the early phase of Italian Nephrology before the introduction in our country of renal biopsy and of hemodialysis.
