PAIRS previewed and EVA reviewed in assessment of access for dialysis


Looking ahead to the upcoming Pan Arab Interventional Radiological Society meeting (PAIRS, 11–14 February, Dubai, UAE), Karim Abdel Tawab (Ain Shams University, Cairo, Egypt) speaks at the 2022 Endo Vascular Access Meeting (EVA, 4–8 July 2022, Patras, Greece) to PAIRS president Ayman Al-Sibaie (Sharjah Medical Center, Sharjah, UAE). They explore some of the aspects of dialysis access that will be covered at the Dubai-based conference.

Representing PAIRS, they highlight elements of the society’s presence at EVA 2022, including a talk from Al-Sibaie on unexpected complications and how to deal with them. Turning to the subject of dialysis access practice in the Middle East, Al-Sibaie points to the role of interventional radiologists in maintaining fistulas and dealing with cephalic arch stenosis in particular. He impels those in the field to attend the PAIRS congress to educate themselves and build scientific knowledge to inform their practice.
