This revised edition of a monograph which introduces the student to the basic science principles and clinical applications of renal physiology begins with structure and function of the kidneys and a step-by-step review of renal processes. The text emphasizes the core body of information needed to fully understand renal haemodynamics, sodium and water excretion, renal regulation of potassium, hydrogen ion and calcium/phosphate balance. The book introduces the student to the molecular biology aspects of renal physiology. It also: includes more study questions with detailed answers following each chapter; outines "learning objectives" in each chapter, and features expanded lists of suggested readings; and includes expanded coverage of intra-renal mediators. Detailed footnotes and suggested readings are supplied for expanded study.

. ON VANDER'S RENAL PHYSIOLOGY. ***** The book to have re: the beans ... If you want to understand the Kidney, no matter where you are in your studies or practice, I wholeheartedly recommend this text.".
Kevin C. Delahanty, MD, USN, online review.
. ***** "A lifesaver ... I am now studying for the USMLE Step 1. I have not looked at Vander's book in a year, but I still remember renal phys, and reviewing it now is the easiest part of my studying ... because, thanks to Vander, I actually understand renal physiology. A great book!!".
