9780124116023: Chronic Renal Disease

Chronic Renal Disease comprehensively investigates the physiology, pathophysiology, treatment, and management of chronic kidney disease (CKD). This translational reference takes an in-depth look at CKD while excluding coverage of dialysis or transplantation, which are both well detailed in other textbooks and references. Chapters in the basic science sections are devoted to the scientific underpinnings of the development and progression of CKD, including consideration of different etiologic factors. Chapters in the treatment and management sections are geared towards the most common problems faced by nephrologists in the management of CKD. Each chapter relates specific illnesses to the CKD framework instead of covering only the specific illness. Readers will learn, for example, how the management of CKD in a patient with diabetic nephropathy differs from that of other CKD patients. Chapters indicate which unique complications the reader needs to be aware of when treating a specific patient or disease.

Chronic Renal Disease includes a companion web-based question and answer supplement to each chapter. This is a valuable resource to reinforce the content of the chapters. The questions are multiple-choice, clinically focused and include referenced discussions of answers. The questions can be used for medical student, resident and fellow teaching, preparation for board or maintenance of certification examinations, and clinician teaching or conference preparation.

  • Provides a useful resource to professors who need to create lectures for residents and fellows, and to identify and summarize relevant literature as it relates to various research projects
  • Includes multiple choice questions and answers, which can be used as a teaching tool for conferences and continuing medical education activities
  • Includes coverage of classification and measurement, epidemiology, pathophysiology, complications of CKD, fluid / electrolyte disorders in CKD, CKD and systemic illnesses, clinical considerations, therapeutic considerations, and special considerations

From the Back Cover:

"This is a scientific textbook on clinical nephrology. The assembled authors are all leading experts hand-picked from worldwide by very human editors. The authors provided basic biological knowledge, patient-oriented pathophysiology, and clinical therapeutics for common and important renal diseases in each chapter. Overall the textbook will help any readers – from residents to faculty staff – understand the most updated information just like meeting with tremendous clinical experts."

―Yoshihiko Kanno, MD, PhD, Professor and Chairman, Department of Nephrology, Tokyo Medical University, Tokyo, Japan

"This new book succeeds, despite its anachronistic and non-conformist title, largely because of the excellence of the individual chapters. It is a sheer delight to read. The Editors have skilfully concocted a recipe containing the finest ingredients (authors) for a very palatable, digestible and ultimately satisfying feast of information on an extremely important, and often misunderstood, topic in contemporary medicine. While I cannot agree with every syllable of its prose, one cannot deny a conclusion that this book fills, to a remarkable degree, a void in the literature of medicine – a vacuum created by the 21st century transformation of

a chaotic landscape of confusing terminology and poorly understood epidemiology and pathophysiology Into a vibrant, albeit controversial, essential element in the practice of Nephrology. From the precious and elegant description of the fascinating history of chronic kidney (or renal) disease to the astounding complexity of the still unfolding story of pathobiology, this collection of essays, reviews and analyses has something for everyone who is a motivated learner. Comprehension of the detailed knowledge encompassed between its covers will give physicians the tools needed to provide superior care to patients suffering from the disorders described. Despite the seeming completeness of coverage of the generic topic, the description of

the state-of-the art clearly shows how much remains unknown and how many controversies need to be resolved, not the least of which is how best to define the disorder in a way that has direct meaning to individuals as compared to populations and to how to detect it in a way that will lead to an improvement in the health of society as a whole. One might predict with confidence that the anticipated subsequent editions of this landmark text will continue to enlighten and empower clinicians and investigators in their continued quest for victory over the causes and consequences of this broadly defined disorder. This book belongs on the shelf, close at hand, of every nephrologist. It will get a lot of use."

―Richard J. Glassock, MD, MACP, Emeritus Professor, The Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA, Los Angeles, CA, USA
