Back to Creating and Maintaining Dialysis Access (On-demand)
This course will provide an up-to-date overview of the ever-expanding role of IR in the creation and maintenance of access for hemodialysis. While new technologies will be highlighted, well established approaches to de-clotting and PTA will also be covered. A peek into the underlying cellular pathology will give a glimpse into the future of this field of IR practice.
This program is designed to meet the educational needs of interventional radiologists, in-training physicians, nurse practitioners, nurses, techs and other physicians at all levels with special interest in dialysis access and vascular surgery.
After purchasing access to this educational activity, you will be directed to the SIR Learning Center to participate in the activity and obtain your certificate. To receive CME credit for this enduring activity, participants must watch the video and score 70% or better on the post-activity exam. Participants will have three opportunities to score 70% or better.
Upon completion of this Webinar, participants should be able to:
Distinguish the different tools to increase access patency and life
Explain how to create percutaneous dialysis access
Describe the use of drug coated balloons and Stent Grafts to reduce reintervention rate and improve access patency
