Description of the Webinar
Peritoneal dialysis access placement presents a major barrier to development of peritoneal dialysis provision in both acute kidney injury and chronic kidney disease. Although previously felt to be the remit of surgeons, peritoneal access can and should be managed by the nephrologist using a team based approach. It has been shown that in units where nephrologists place Tenckhoff catheters there are much higher PD penetration rates. This webinar will discuss the various aspects of peritoneal access from an interventional nephrologist's perspective.
This webinar took place on Friday, June 10th from 9AM - 10AM EST (New York).
