Objective: Central venous stenosis and occlusions of the major intrathoracic veins (jugular, subclavian, brachiocephalic, superior vena cava) can jeopardise arteriovenous fistula/graft function, or limit access creation options in end-stage kidney disease. This workshop highlights indications/contraindications, and management options of central venous occlusion and stenosis in the ESKD patients on HD.

As central venous stenosis and occlusion is a more common vascular disorder because of the rising number of patients with end stage renal disease on catheter, its treatment requires many specialists to be able to deal with this  problem. Thus, the course is designed to give the participants wider knowledge that will be useful in their daily practice. The course will highlight the indications for some specific methods, which are the most appropriate for given patients. The eligible cases will be presented, and a tailored treatment indicated. By attending this course, participants will know the indications for some specific treatment modalities and be able to decide if they are the most appropriate for a given patient. A thought that there is no unique and perfect treatment modality for each patient will be presented and highlighted.
