CiDA 2021 sets out to tackle current controversies polarising dialysis access landscape


The upcoming Controversies in Dialysis Access (CiDA) meeting in Dallas, Texas is stepping up the scrutiny on the controversies and questions currently igniting the dialysis community, Bart Dolmatch (Portola Valley, USA) tells Renal Interventions at the Paris Vascular Insights meeting.

Topping the agenda are the use of drug-coated balloon technology to maintain and treat stenosis in the dialysis access circuit (“the results of at least four large, randomised trials are phenomenally different”); the place for percutaneous arteriovenous fistula creation (“is it ready for prime time?”) and safety and quality in the provision of dialysis access (“who is watching?”). And, they will all come under the scanner at CiDA.
