Interventional nephrology is a new and emerging subspecialty of nephrology that mainly deals with ultrasonography of kidneys and ultrasound-guided renal biopsy, insertion of peritoneal dialysis catheters, tunneled dialysis catheters as a vascular access for patients undergoing hemodialysis, as well as percutaneous endovascular procedures performed to manage dysfunction of arteriovenous fistulas or grafts in end-stage renal disease patients.
