Innovations in Dialysis Vascular Access Surgery


Series: Urology Research Progress
BISAC: MED088000

This book analyses the latest advancements in the very important topic of vascular access in haemodialysis patients. Dialysis patients are a continuously growing population all over the world. Long-lasting and well-functioning vascular access is a life-line for these patients. Therefore, successful creation and appropriate management of vascular access is of the utmost importance.

This book comprehensively reviews the different and most important issues related to vascular access management. It has 33 chapters discussing a wide variety of the most important topics including: principles of access creation in adults, paediatric and geriatric populations; types of anaesthesia; central venous catheters; early cannulation and hybrid vascular grafts; possible complications and principles of their management; quality of life in dialysis patients; etc. It consists of a review as well as original articles pertaining to the subject matter. The book also describes rare forms of arterio-venous accesses, last resort dialysis accesses, and life-saving approaches for the most challenging patients.

All of the authors are experts in the field. They represent 16 different countries across the world, making this book especially unique. The chapters are well-illustrated, making them easy to read. We hope that this book will offer the most contemporary and useful information for specialists involved in haemodialysis therapy. (Imprint: Nova Biomedical)
