Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Mony Fraer, MD, FACP, FASN (University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics)
Description: The most important aspects of adult nephrology and hypertension are covered in 37 short chapters divided into eight sections in this update, published five years after the previous edition.
Purpose: This handbook is intended as a source of practical, concise, and easy to read information on conditions in the field of nephrology and hypertension.
Audience: The potential audience includes trainees (students, residents, and fellows), internists, and physicians in specialties other than nephrology. The two editors are authorities in the field and have worked with 31 faculty (including a pharmacist, a urologist, and a gynecologist) and fellows from their respective institutions. Many chapters are coauthored by a fellow and a faculty member and quite a few chapters are written by the editors.
Features: There is significant emphasis on the main classes of drugs used to treat hypertension and the chapter on diabetic kidney disease has been updated. For future editions, the editors might consider covering topics like a work-up for hematuria or of an abnormal renal function, complications of renal failure besides anemia, drug-induced renal failure, or when to refer a patient to a nephrologist. Also, there are newer criteria for diagnosing the hepatorenal syndrome. The handbook includes a 23-page index and a good number of algorithms and tables (I particularly liked the ones comparing different types of cystic diseases and the one for tubulointerstitial disease).
Assessment: With about six other handbooks in the field, some overlapping is to be expected in this niche. However, each book has a different style and approach to the subject. Overall, the editors have met their objectives with this one.
