Abstract
This book is a thorough guide to dialysis that will assist in the effective treatment of patients. Current knowledge on all aspects of dialysis, including the most recent advances, is presented and the various techniques used in dialysis patients are described step by step. Both hemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis are fully considered. The coverage of hemodialysis explains the procedure and its indications and provides guidance on challenging topics such as vascular access, response to acute and chronic complications, and on-line hemodiafiltration. The discussion of peritoneal dialysis includes explanation of peritoneal physiology, the principles of prescription, and the treatment of peritonitis and exit site infection. A summary of updated dialysis-related guidelines is included at the end of the book. The lucid text is supported by more than 200 full-color illustrations that clarify anatomy, vascular/peritoneal access, and dialysis procedures and techniques. The Essentials of Clinical Dialysis will be of value for all who are involved in the management of dialysis patients and will be a helpful guide for training of physicians and healthcare associates in the dialysis center.

Abstract
This book aims to educate general and vascular surgeons on all pertinent aspects of peritoneal dialysis (PD). Most surgeons get very little training in residency on this topic, and the use of PD is growing around the world. Much of the book will focus on implantation techniques, especially laparoscopic insertions. The authors will describe the known adjunct procedures that have been shown to decrease dysfunction rates. The aim is to provide greater patient autonomy, a better quality of life, preservation of residual renal function and a higher survival advantage.
