This practical and comprehensive book provides "how-to" information on all aspects of access to the vascular system for hemodialysis, parenteral nutrition, chemotherapy, and resuscitation. Preoperative evaluation, operations, noninvasive procedures, complications, and other aspects are detailed. This edition provides increased coverage of non-interventional techniques and includes new chapters on management of thrombophilia in hemodialysis patients; modulation of the immune system to prevent myointimal hyperplasia; synthetic grafts; venous outflow stenting for salvage of vascular access procedures; and ultrasound in vascular access procedures. This book is essential for all clinicians treating patients who require vascular access, including vascular surgeons, general surgeons, nephrologists, dialysis technicians and nurses, radiologists, and cardiologists.

Recent developments have spurred a renewed interest in novel solutions to access the patient circulation, mainly concentrating on vascular access for renal replacement therapies and on peritoneal dialysis access.Starting with the epidemiology, the focus then shifts to the evolution of new techniques and monitoring procedures with regard to hemodialysis, which are discussed and evaluated. Attention is also paid to the new biomaterials available, concentrating on their improved biocompatibility and surface characteristics. As developments in the field of peritoneal dialysis have taken a similar turn, new devices providing access to the peritoneal cavity which have recently been made available are introduced next. Last but not least, the management of complications and the continuous maintenance and care of the access with regard to both hemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis are highlighted.This book provides a complete overview of the devices, catheters and methods currently available to ensure successful vascular and peritoneal access. Taking into account both the physiology of the extracorporeal circulation and the mechanisms of peritoneal dialysis with regard to the most adequate access techniques, this is a unique resource for clinicians, investigators and researchers in the field of renal replacement therapy.
This comprehensive reference on the fundamentals of hemodialysis access creation and advanced management for maintenance is designed to meet the needs of all surgeons and physicians responsible for the treatment and care of patients undergoing dialysis. The book opens by discussing every aspect of dialysis access planning, including selection of the right access for the individual patient and access strategies. Hemodialysis access techniques, from the most basic to the most complex and unconventional, are then described step by step, and guidance is provided on follow-up. Detailed attention is also devoted to the challenging management of specific complications of dialysis access surgery, including failing hemodialysis access. The book includes a wealth of informative, high-quality images and illustrations, and the authors are prominent vascular surgeons, transplant surgeons, general surgeons, nephrologists, and interventional radiologists from across the United States.
Dialysis Access: A Multidisciplinary Approach gives radiologists, nephrologists, and surgeons the complete knowledge base they need to deliver effective, coordinated care to dialysis patients with vascular access needs. This practical guide explains how to implement the National Kidney Foundation's Dialysis Outcomes Quality Initiative (DOQI) guidelines for vascular access and details procedures for creating vascular access...monitoring access failure...treating blocked access...and inserting and using catheters. Dr. Gray is the lead author for the Society of Cardiovascular and Interventional Radiology (SCVIR)'s Dialysis Access Reporting Standards. International contributors are expert interventional radiologists, nephrologists, and vascular access surgeons. Dialysis Access: A Multidisciplinary Approach fully integrates these specialties' perspectives.
This updated volume covers the basic principles and practice of dialysis access management. To cover the latest trends and evidence from clinical trials, new chapters on the management of cephalic arch stenosis and swing zone stenosis, the role of drug eluting balloon in dialysis access interventions, the management of central vein stenosis, endovascular creation of AVF, and the management of steal syndrome have been included. Dialysis Access Management gives readers a step-by-step guide to endovascular interventions with special emphasis on the principles and rationale behind these approaches. This book is an essential text for residents, fellows, and physicians who are learning or practicing in dialysis, especially in the fields of nephrology, radiology, surgery, and vascular medicine.
The incidence of treated end stage renal disease (ESRD) continues to rise, particularly in the western world. Although renal transplantation is the treatment of choice for ESRD, the decline in the number of cadaveric organs, coupled with the rising demand for transplantation, means that an increasing number of patients will have to depend on dialysis. Vascular or peritoneal access is the Achilles' heel of any dialysis service. This book offers a clear description of the state of the art in providing and preserving a durable and reliable access. It also points the way to dialysis in the 21st century. The contributing authors are drawn from a wide background, with expertise in various aspects of dialysis access, including its history, the technique of placement, anaesthesia, radiology, nursing care and training of vascular access surgeons. There is currently a dearth of books on the subject of dialysis access. The few existing books on vascular access were written in the United States, with none from the UK. This volume is intended for use by transplant surgeons, general surgeons with an interest in vascular access, vascular surgeons, nephrologists, trainees and nurses. Dialysis services are expanding worldwide and this book is an invaluable guide for those involved in daily patient care and organisation of dialysis services.

While the focus is dialysis access, there is sufficient related information to allow the book to stand alone as an independent reference.”Communique, Renal Society of Australasia
"The renal failure and hemodialysis dependent population is increasing worldwide. Hemodialysis access is the life-line of these patients. Hemodialysis access related surgical and interventional procedures form a major demand to the healthcare services in many developed and developing countries. As such, the proper clinical decision, planning and performance of these procedures will greatly benefit the hemodialysis patients and reduce unnecessary healthcare costs. This book is a practical guide for clinicians and nurses creating, treating or managing hemodialysis accesses for renal failure patients. Basic principles to manage common or difficult situations of hemodialysis access are discussed and illustrative clinical cases are shown as examples. This book is an essential reading material for healthcare professionals in their early phase of developing the hemodialysis access program, while providing useful tips and tricks to established clinicians that will broaden their armamentarium."--

Not only are dialysis access creation and maintenance prone to complications, but patients suffering from end-stage renal disease and its comorbidities generally have a high risk of adverse events during their continuous treatment. Preventive strategies are key to avoid harm and to improve the outcome of the treatment of the growing number of patients with chronic kidney failure, especially as doctors and nurses are not always aware of the consequences of unsafe behavior. This publication is intended for health care professionals – nurses as well as doctors – and aims to raise the awareness of patient safety aspects, combining medical education with evidence-based medicine. After a general overview of the topic, an international panel of authors provides a diversified insight into important concepts and technical tricks essential to create and maintain a functional dialysis access.
