Abstract

The foundation of endovascular procedures by nephrologists was laid in the private practice arena. Because of political issues such as training, credentialing, space and equipment expenses, and co-management concerns surrounding the performance of dialysis-access procedures, the majority of these programs provided care in an outpatient vascular access center. On the basis of the improvement of patient care demonstrated by these centers, several nephrology programs at academic medical centers have also embraced this approach. In addition to providing interventional care on an outpatient basis, academic medical centers have taken a step further to expand collaboration with other specialties with similar expertise (such as with interventional radiologists and cardiologists) to enhance patient care and research. The enthusiastic initiative, cooperative, and mutually collaborative efforts used by academic medical centers have resulted in the successful establishment of interventional nephrology programs. This article describes various models of interventional nephrology programs at academic medical centers across the United States.
