Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Jon Webb, MD (University of Kentucky College of Medicine)
Description: This is the third edition of a reference on a wide spectrum of clinically important kidney diseases.
Purpose: The goal is to provide a resource for clinicians dealing with patients with a variety of kidney diseases. As a companion to the comprehensive Brenner and Rector's The Kidney, this resource attempts to maintain a current review of many clinical areas in nephrology. Each chapter is written by a leading expert, challenged to summarize the latest available information on the clinical management of kidney diseases.
Audience: This book is a helpful resource for physicians practicing in a variety of settings. The initial sections are ideal for primary care physicians with an increasing CKD population, while the remaining sections are more specific for nephrologists, with an emphasis on dialysis modalities, transplantation, and management of acute kidney injury.
Features: This reference attempts to cover an enormous amount of information to accomplish the large task of summarizing the most recent information in the management of chronic and acute kidney disease. The initial two sections focus on the definition, pathophysiology, clinical causes, and progressive management of chronic kidney disease. The next two sections review the latest in dialysis modalities, while the fifth section focuses on transplantation Each chapter is organized differently, with some chapters providing conclusions, future directions, or even case examples. These differences make certain summaries more attractive and others less so. I do think this is a very important book, particularly the first two sections in recognizing and managing progressive chronic kidney disease. This growing population of patients will need appropriate management by primary care physicians and educational resources such as this provide a good option. The subsequent sections are better suited for nephrologists, but provide easy to read information on the latest trends in management of advanced CKD, followed by a review of acute kidney injury diagnosis and management.
Assessment: As the rapid growth of new knowledge in kidney disease continues, this resource will need frequent interval editions, but I would recommend it in particular for those in training for nephrology.
From the Publisher

"...this is a very important book, particularly the first two sections in recognizing and managing progressive chronic kidney disease. This growing population of patients will need appropriate management by primary care physicians and educational resources such as this provide a good option. The subsequent sections are better suited for nephrologists, but provide easy to read information on the latest trends in management of advanced CKD, followed by a review of acute kidney injury diagnosis and management." - Jon Webb, MD, Doody's Review Service

"This is the third edition of a text written by well renowned experts, clinicians, and researchers in the fields of nephrology, hypertension, and kidney transplantation. It is intended for physicians as well as other allied health professionals having particular interest in chronic kidney disease (CKD) and its confounding complications. ... The editors have used a consistent, comprehensive, and easy-to-read format placing appropriate emphasis on the latest understanding of CKD, based on recently published literature. Unlike some other reference textbooks on the subject, this book is less encyclopedic and primarily centers on CKD-relevant material. ... The book's format is appealing and reader friendly. ... In keeping with technology and interactive learning, the publishers have enabled readers to access an electronic version of the book through the ExpertConsult website. This unique feature gives the user the ability to print material as well as the ability to click on the references at the end of each chapter and link them to online databases such as MEDLINE and PubMed. ... Chronic Kidney Disease, Dialysis, and Transplantation will be of utmost interest to clinicians and readers with special interest in CKD, particularly nephrologists, nephrology fellows-in-training, internists, and family practioners. Similarly, other allied health professionals who deal with CKD will find this book exceedingly useful. For medical students, interns, and residents intending to undertake sub-specialty training in nephrology, the book provides a good introduction to the bread-and-butter issues encounteres in most nephrology practices, whether in academic settings or the private sectore. I strongly recommend that it should be available in all medical school libraries." - Edgar Lerma, MD, JAMA
