Renal Replacement Therapy: Controversies and Future Trends

“As a specialist, I always want to know what is the state of the art. But I also want to know where the future lies, and to be aware of the controversies and potential solutions. I am therefore delighted to recommend this book that provides insight into the ongoing challenges and the future of renal replacement therapies.”

Richard J Johnson, MD. A Founding Editor of Comprehensive Clinical Nephrology, Elsevier

“‘Renal Replacement Therapy – Controversies and Future Trends’ is a must read for all nephrologists and those in training. Outstanding authors take a unique look at current practice, opportunities to improve care, and the potential for the care for kidney patients. Not as much a textbook as a roadmap to the future!”

“Medicine is always looking for evidence derived from research and is often inspired by controversies. As well as being a very worthwhile read, this book acts as a delightful guide to the current practice of renal replacement therapy. It merits particular consideration for uniquely highlighting the underlying challenges and controversies in the field, in addition to the potential solutions created by innovative technologies for more carefully and individually tailored care for kidney patients. I wholeheartedly recommend this as required reading for both senior and, particularly, young nephrologists”.
