Editor

The field of interventional nephrology needs to be viewed as a new road towards improving the diagnostic
methods and the dialysis access care provided to chronic kidney disease patients across the world. The above issues
remain a weak link in the training of young nephrologists and a major hurdle both in the planning and maintenance
phase of renal replacement therapy, as well as in the accuracy and safety of diagnosing renal impairment causation.
Traditionally, the procedural aspect of care has been left in many cases to surgeons and/or radiologists. The above
facts lead in many cases to patient inconvenience and high health care cost. The aim of this book is not only learning
the necessary skills to perform renal medical procedures, but for nephrologists to assume leadership roles in
coordinating a team to provide the best possible care. Mostly, this book is focused on details and secrets that can
make the results better than we expect. Introducing renal physicians to the insertion of tunneled lines, medical
insertion of peritoneal catheters and kidney biopsies (native and transplant) from the nephrologists view is a great
need in renal society. The primary focus of this book is to generate interest and awareness of the scope of
interventional nephrology. The nephrology community across the world needs to evaluate the available resources to
discuss the role of various team members and strive to improve patient care. Editors' and authors experiences are
exposed in the book, which tends to help the growth and progress of this subspecialty. The trend is also seen as a
recruiting tool to train the nephrology workforce in the future.
