Written by an interdisciplinary team of experts, this book contains historical information as well as current update on renal replacement therapy. New technology and techniques are presented in a concise, easy-to-read style that keeps the reader interested.
The contributors include physicians who practise uremia therapy since its conception to more recent graduates, along with surgeons, pioneers and physicians who are patients themselves, thus giving readers the broadest perspective.
The aim of the book is to update the reader on renal replacement therapy as of 2009. It is a textbook that can be read cover to cover and still serve as a fine reference guide. The book is targeted at anyone interested in kidney replacement therapy, from students and patients to the professorial level.
