Show synopsis his encyclopedic reference brings together the work of a multidisciplinary group of leading investigators to provide a current, authoritative resource for clinical nephrologists and trainees, graduate students, and researchers in physiology and nephrology. The book offers a comprehensive review of renal physiology and pathophysiology and methodically progresses from molecular biology and cell physiology to clinical issues regarding renal function and dysfunction. Since the publication of the previous edition, understanding of the molecular and structural basis of electrolyte and water metabolism has expanded enormously. The new edition of The Kidney illuminates these basic science principles clearly and thoroughly whilst providing comprehensive and clear clinical management. With the advantage of tight editing and rigorous chapter revision, the publication has now become a two volume work. The book is 3400 pages long with over 1000 illustrations as well as hundreds of tables making The Kidney a highly recommended text for anyone active in renal research and clinical nephrology.
