  • Practical resource to clinical scenarios involving chronic kidney disease and dialysis patients
  • Comprehensively presents the latest scientific information on interventional nephrology
  • Authored by the leaders in this rapidly growing subspecialty

Historically, dialysis access care has been delegated to a variety of specialists, resulting in fragmentation of care delivery.  Interventional Nephrology (IN) is an emerging subspecialty of Nephrology that focuses on providing continuity of clinical and procedural care to chronic kidney disease and dialysis patients.  The procedures of IN include renal ultrasonography, placement and removal of hemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis catheters, angiography and balloon angioplasty for vascular access stenosis, endovascular stent and coil placement for dialysis access dysfunction, and thrombectomy procedures for clotted vascular access. 


Interventional Nephrology: Principles and Practice describes a very direct approach to clinical problems encountered by the community of care providers who treat chronic kidney disease and dialysis patients.  Practical scenarios faced on a day-to-day basis are presented by experts in the field utilizing the latest scientific information.  In addition to internal medicine residents, nephrology fellows and practitioners, this comprehensive and useful resource is a must-have for the allied health professionals taking care of patients with hemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis access problems.
