  • NEW CME MODULE 16 AVAILABLE


    We are excited to announce that Kidney Academy has launched the new CME Module 16: Modified Seldinger Peritoneal Dialysis (SPD) Catheter Placement - and it's currently available online free of charge!

    Summary: In addition to kidney transplantation and hemodialysis, peritoneal dialysis is a third method to keep patients with kidney failure alive. SPD has been a game changer in the management of patients going into kidney failure. Initial results using this technique described in Module 16 have been published in the Journal of Vascular Access (1,2).

    The surgical placement of SPD technique is like the endovascular technique used in vascular access procedures using catheters, wires, and balloons. Hence, current barriers between vascular access and peritoneal dialysis are removed – vascular surgeons and interventionalists now can easily adopt these technical aspects of PD catheter placement.

    This module has 45 videos and 30 images describing the detailed technique for the Modified Seldinger Peritoneal Dialysis (SPD) Catheter Placement
