The recent advances in many aspects of kidney diseases have mandated the ninth edition of Schrier's Diseases of the Kidney. This all-encompassing work provides both clinicians and academicians with information they need to treat and study kidney disorders. Combining basic and clinical sciences, the book provides authoritative, concise, and readily accessible information. About 200 international authorities, guided by a team of five distinguished authorities in nephrology, create an invaluable resource. Dr. Schrier, the long-time sole editor of this work, has recruited four eminent nephrologists as co-editors for this edition.
The book is divided into eleven sections that cover:
Structural, Functional Correlations in the Kidney
Cystic and Tubular Disorders
Infections of the Urinary Tract and the Kidney
Acute Renal Injury
Glomerular, Interstitial, and Vascular Renal Diseases
Systemic Diseases of the Kidney
Disorders of Electrolyte, Water, and Acid-Base
Chronic Kidney Disease
Management of End-Stage Renal Disease
