About this book


Through case presentations and a question and answer format, Clinical Decisions in Nephrology, Hypertension and Renal Transplantation  provides a state of the art, updated reference for the optimal management of patients with diseases of the kidneys, and hypertension. This volume starts with the assessment of the patient, focusing on history and physical examination. Subsequently, cases depicting various clinical syndromes and/or diseases are presented, with questions centering on the appropriate diagnostic and treatment strategy. This sets the stage for a ‘Socratic approach’ to learning between the attending physician and the house staff or medical student.

This is the only book featuring problem-oriented true to life clinical cases in this format to cover nephrology, hypertension and kidney transplantation. Written by renowned actively practicing clinicians, this unique reference is both comprehensive and concise and will be of great value to hospitalists and internists, as well as students, and interns/residents rotating in nephrology and internal medicine. Clinical practitioners, in the fields of critical care and hypertension specialists would also find this of value.

“The goal is to provide a resource for medical residents and fellows on the variety of kidney diseases. This book is a helpful resource for physicians practicing in a variety of settings. … The book presents all the relevant information in fairly lucid manner without compromising on the details. … I would strongly recommend this book for nephrology fellows and medical residents who are interested in nephrology.” (Vamsi Rokkam, Doody’s Book Reviews, September, 2013)
