The field of renal disease has witnessed a virtual explosion of new knowledge in the past decade. Advances in our understanding of the pathogenesis and treatment of this complex group of disorders have been appearing at a dizzying pace. While several large texts are available which deal with all aspects of renal disease, there is a real need for a compendium of the critical information dealing with the management of these disorders that is so vital to the practising nephrologist. This Third Edition of the "Therapy of Renal Diseases and Related Disorders", as was the case with the First and Second Editions, is intended to provide the physician with the clearest, most comprehensive text available on the management of the diverse array of disorders of fluids and electrolytes, of acid-base and mineral metabolism, and of renal structure and function.An international group of authorities, including many who had contributed to the First and Second Editions, have lent their vision and expertise to this endeavor. In order to reflect the many changes of the past six years, original chapters have been revised or completely rewritten, and several new chapters have been added.
Thus, "Therapy of Renal Diseases and Related Disorders, Third Edition" has a scope of coverage unrivalled by any other volume. Analytical aspects of diagnosis blended with practical therapeutic applications make this monumental new edition a standard for the late 1990s, and perhaps early into the next century. It will prove to be a frequently consulted reference that should be on the shelf of every specialist involved with kidney and urological disorders.
