Overview

Pocket Companion to Brenner and Rector’s The Kidney distills the essential clinical information from the latest edition of the seminal text on kidney diseases and their management. Michael R. Clarkson, Ciara Magee, and Barry M. Brenner detail the key pathophysiologic, diagnostic, and treatment issues in clinical nephrology, including interventional nephrology, endocrine aspects of kidney disease, and plasmapheresis.
• Diagnose, treat, and manage both common and uncommon disorders.
• Find clinical knowledge quickly and easily thanks to convenient tables throughout the text.
• Choose the best option of the many techniques available through discussions of indications for laboratory tests and imaging studies.

Enhance your clinical acumen with coverage of new topics such as risk factors and kidney disease, nephron endowment, interventional nephrology, plasmapheresis, xenotransplantation, stem cells in renal biology and medicine, and more.

Stay current thanks to two new sections-Epidemiology and Risk Factors in Kidney Disease and Frontiers in Kidney Disease-that include topics such as stem cell and genomics.

Editorial Reviews

Doody Reviews
Reviewer: Mony Fraer, MD, FACP, FASN (University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics)
Description: This update of a handbook derived from Brenner and Rector's The Kidney , 8th edition (Elsevier, 2008) , comes five years after the previous edition. Over the span of 850 pages, divided into 10 sections and 40 chapters, it covers all relevant aspects of nephrology and hypertension, starting with patient evaluation, moving through epidemiology and pathogenesis of renal diseases, acid-base and electrolyte disturbances, hypertension, renal failure and replacement therapy, and closing with issues in transplantation.
Purpose: Like the other five companions to the parent textbook, this is a source of immediate, concise, current, and clinically relevant information written at an accessible level. The niche of nephrology handbooks is crowded, but this updated companion has an important place. Compared with other handbooks in the field, this is a robust contribution that is quite comprehensive.
Audience: With this book, the well-known authors address a broad audience of practitioners who treat patients with kidney diseases: medical students, residents, fellows, internists, urologists, and primary care physicians.
Features: Clinically relevant chapters from the parent book are included, covering key pathophysiological, diagnostic, and treatment issues in clinical nephrology, including interventional nephrology, endocrine aspects of kidney disease and plasmapheresis. An important addition to this book is the section on the conservative and pharmacologic management of kidney disease, with its focus on diet, renoprotection, and drug prescription. The same is the case for the section on the genetic basis of kidney disease, given the recent discoveries in stem cells and genomics. The 60-page index is comprehensive.
Assessment: The information the book presents is evidence-based or guideline-supported. Tables appear throughout the book; personally, I find these handbooks easier to use when there are a lot of tables, diagrams, and decision algorithms that summarize the information presented in the text. Overall, it is awfully nice to get comprehensive information of the same quality as the parent textbook, but in a smaller format.
