A Color Handbook of Renal Medicine
Thieme, 2004 - Medical - 240 pages
More than any other subdivision of internal medicine, successful nephrological practice is dependent on other specialties. The kidneys are affected by many systemic diseases. There is increased incidence of cardiovascular and neoplastic disease in patients with renal failure. Expertise is needed in renal imaging, arterial intervention and renal histopathological examination. Reflecting all of these elements, the authors have compiled a practical handbook to help physicians in practice and training to diagnose and manage patients with renal disease. The format of this book follows the stages of renal disease beginning with presenting symptoms and syndromes. It goes on to cover inherited renal diseases, glomerular and systemic diseases, acute and chronic renal failure, dialysis and renal transplantation. Every condition is clarified with high-quality color and black and white images, facilitating efficient identification and diagnosis. The Handbook will be of value to physicians and trainees in nephrology and internal medicine, and to medical students in their clinical years.
