Dialysis Access: Temporary and Permanent
The evolution of dialysis techniques continues to parallel the development of access devices that may be used on a short-term or a long-term basis. In the brief time since the first edition of this chapter, certain technologies have been relegated to the history of surgery, while new access devices are currently available that bridge the gap between short-term temporary dialysis and chronic dialysis. In this chapter, we will summarize the surgical techniques for inserting and maintaining access devices that we currently utilize for hemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis.
