About this book

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.

Reviews

“This is a comprehensive overview of hemodialysis access and the subtleties involved in the care of patients with end‐ stage renal disease (ESRD). … The book is designed for surgeons, interventionalists, nephrologists, and other providers who care for patients with end‐ stage renal disease. … As an educator in the field of nephrology, I plan to use this as a tool for trainees and patient care. The images are particularly brilliant and make this a unique reference.” (Jon Webb, Doody's Book Reviews, November, 2017)
