Comprehensive, concise, easy to use, and with a strong focus on pragmatic guidance, this handbook will enable you to confidently manage both common and complex nephrological problems whenever, and wherever, they are encountered.

The book manages to cover all aspects from cellular biology to carrying out practical procedures and for this reason you can see why it would be in the pockets of most practicing nephrologists.
