Upper Extremity and Vascular Access, a volume in the Modern Trends in Vascular Surgery series, covers a range of topics that pertain to hemodialysis access and the upper extremities. The book is divided into six sections: (1) history of the symposium; (2) the creation of hemodialysis access ranging from preoperative evaluation to new graft design and concluding with a chapter on dialysis access coding and billing; (3) the management of hemodialysis access complications with chapters that discuss difficult decision-making with complex patients; (4) issues related to upper extremity catheters in the venous and arterial systems; (5) upper extremity compression syndromes including thoracic outlet syndrome; (6) management of upper extremity trauma and both open surgical approaches and endovascular options.

The annual symposium on vascular surgery, sponsored by the Division of Vascular Surgery at the Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine, addresses contemporary topics and controversies in vascular and endovascular surgery. Presentations at the symposium cover the full spectrum of vascular surgery, including changes in management of extracranial cerebrovascular disease, new treatment options for lower extremity arterial occlusive disease, hemodialysis access, improvements in techniques for complex venous disease, and developments in aortic stent graft repair in the chest and abdomen. The Modern Trends in Vascular Surgery series is a topical compilation of the standout presentations from the most recent three symposia.
