This practical and comprehensive book provides "how-to" information on all aspects of access to the vascular system for hemodialysis, parenteral nutrition, chemotherapy, and resuscitation. Preoperative evaluation, operations, noninvasive procedures, complications, and other aspects are detailed. This edition provides increased coverage of non-interventional techniques and includes new chapters on management of thrombophilia in hemodialysis patients; modulation of the immune system to prevent myointimal hyperplasia; synthetic grafts; venous outflow stenting for salvage of vascular access procedures; and ultrasound in vascular access procedures. This book is essential for all clinicians treating patients who require vascular access, including vascular surgeons, general surgeons, nephrologists, dialysis technicians and nurses, radiologists, and cardiologists.
