Sometimes in dialysis access surgery it seems you cannot get there from here. Not only are procedures sometimes unexpectedly complex, but there simply are more of them to do with more variation as the population of patients with end-stage renal failure continues to increase. This edition has been updated to reflect the growth in dialysis access care and includes new chapters on peritoneal dialysis, pediatric hemodialysis, graft materials (both biological and synthetic), the role of the nurse and even on the perspective of the patient. The contributors supply very clear clinical photographs, diagnostic imagery or line drawings just when they are needed, and cover such topics as indications for chronic renal access, aspects of temporary vascular access, radiological assessment, primary access for hemodialysis, tertiary vascular access, complex vascular access, complications, infections, function and surveillance, intervention to ensure continued access, and vascular access procedures in children.
