Dear colleagues and professors,


Vascular access is crucial for hemodialysis (HD) patients with end-stage renal disease. As the number and duration of HD patients increase, along with the aging population, CVOD becomes more prevalent and severe. CVOD has a serious impact on the life quality and longevity of HD patients. It is becoming a major challenge for healthcare professionals.


Under the leadership of Professor Cui, our team is dedicated to improving the quality of life for HD patients by preventing and treating CVOD. Our goal is "no central venous occlusion that cannot be recanalized, no dialysis catheter that cannot be inserted". Our team has successfully developed various procedures to recanalize challenging central venous lesions, including percutaneous brachiocephalic vein puncture, percutaneous superior vena cava puncture, recanalization brachiocephalic occlusion via transseptal needle, ROUPS-100 recanalization superior vena cava occlusion. To enhance communication and sharing of expertise, Professor Cui Tianlei will personally lead the training program.


We sincerely invite you to join us in Chengdu, the Land of Abundance, for a dynamic exchange of knowledge and research results, and to help advance the field of vascular access. During the breaks, you can also take the opportunity to experience the cultural richness and taste the delicious food of the world-renowned city.

Brief introduction of Professor Cui TianLei

Professor Cui is good at the establishment and maintenance of hemodialysis access, especially for refractory central venous occlusive lesions. He developed innovative techniques such as brachiocephalic vein puncture, superior vena cava puncture, and recanalization brachiocephalic vein via transseptal needle. He successfully recanalized a 6.9-cm superior vena cava occlusion.
