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.
