This book offers a comprehensive overview of up-to-date knowledge on vascular access surgery. Written by a senior author with more than 30 years of experience and by expert contributors, it covers both surgical and theoretical aspects. The author shares his expertise in a hands-on approach and presents his views on the difficulties that every clinician may encounter. The various options for vascular access creation are carefully reviewed. Detailed descriptions and numerous accompanying illustrations of AV fistulas, AV prosthetic grafts, and arterio arterial grafts are provided, and a chapter is also devoted to the use of central venous catheters. Potential complications and their management are explained, and advice is offered on how to deal with special patient groups requiring extra attention. Separate chapters on fluid dynamics (drawing on the author’s own research) and vascular pathology cater for the needs of those with a particular interest in the pathophysiological principles.

Not only are dialysis access creation and maintenance prone to complications, but patients suffering from end-stage renal disease and its comorbidities generally have a high risk of adverse events during their continuous treatment. Preventive strategies are key to avoid harm and to improve the outcome of the treatment of the growing number of patients with chronic kidney failure, especially as doctors and nurses are not always aware of the consequences of unsafe behavior. This publication is intended for health care professionals – nurses as well as doctors – and aims to raise the awareness of patient safety aspects, combining medical education with evidence-based medicine. After a general overview of the topic, an international panel of authors provides a diversified insight into important concepts and technical tricks essential to create and maintain a functional dialysis access.
