Oxford Textbook of Clinical Nephrolology : Vol 3
This new, comprehensive, and well-referenced textbook provides thorough coverage of the field of clinical nephrology. Edited by leading experts in renal disease who have organized an international team of contributors, this text will assist the nephrologist or general physician in solvingclinical problems on the basis of a thorough understanding of scientific principles. Nephrology relies increasingly on other disciplines such as immunology, genetics, and molecular biology, and this volume offers an integrated approach to renal diseases, emphasizing the biological basis of thelatest diagnostic and therapeutic tools. The surgical aspects, such as stone disease, renal transplant, and obstruction, are dealt with by surgeons. Additional specialist editors in physiology, clinical pharmacology, and pediatrics have edited relevant sections throughout the book to ensure adequatecoverage and accuracy. The final section deals with renal disease as it presents to the specialist in other fields including dermatology, ophthalmology, and oncology. This also offers practicing nephrologists a guide to understanding the diverse non-renal complications of kidney disease. Thisencyclopedic work will be an essential reference for practicing nephrologists, general physicians, and urologists, and for those other specialists who encounter renal disease during the course of their work.
