Renal Failure

  • R. B. Brown


Renal failure may result from solitary or combined impairment of the kidney’s blood supply, parenchymal tissue or calyceal-pelvi-ureteric conducting mechanism. The result may be acute or chronic potentially reversible, or irreversible failure, hence the importance of prophylaxis, early diagnosis and adequate treatment.
