Population aging, demographic changes, treatment improvement and the consequent lengthening of patient life-expectancy force physicians to face new challenges, in this exciting new era of vascular accesses. The purpose is still to extend the survival of the vascular access as much as possible, trying to preserve the vascular pathway, ensuring a good dialysis quality, even in the most challenging cases as well as in emergency. Current technology and new materials are leading this revolution. The present book is intended to be a pragmatic resource to be consulted quickly in the commonest clinical situations. For this reason, the book consists of short chapters, developed by points, with clear and direct explanations. it has been written by authors all over the word, that decided to share their own personal experience as well as the most recent trials and results.

Vascular Access for Hemodialysis. Hemodialysis (HD) takes some wastes and water out of your blood. Your lifeline on HD is a vascular access. An access is a way to reach your blood to clean it. There are three types of vascular access for HD: An arteriovenous (AV) fistula. A surgeon links an artery to a vein under the skin of your arm. How Your Access Works A hemodialysis access, or vascular access, is a way to reach the blood for hemodialysis. The access allows blood to travel through soft tubes to the dialysis machine where it is cleaned as it passes through a special filter, called a dialyzer. An access is placed by a minor surgery. As a hemodialysis patient, your access is one of the following:

More than 90% of dialysis patients in the United States rely on chronic hemodialysis (HD) for renal replacement therapy (1,2). A standard hemodialysis treatment includes the continuous processing of approximately 200-500 mL of blood per minute over a 2-6 hour period and is performed on a 3 times per week basis. This treatment requires safe and readily available access to the circulatory system. vascular access lets large amounts of blood flow continuously during hemodialysis treatments to filter as much blood as possible per treatment. About a pint of blood flows through the machine every minute. A vascular access should be in place weeks or months before the first hemodialysis treatment. Two types of vascular access designed for
