The field of renal disease has witnessed a virtual explosion of new knowledge in the past decade. Advances in our understanding of the pathogenesis and treatment of this complex group of disorders have been appearing at a dizzying pace. While several large texts are available which deal with all aspects of renal disease, there is a real need for a compendium of the critical information dealing with the management of these disorders that is so vital to the practising nephrologist. This Third Edition of the Therapy of Renal Diseases and Related Disorders, as was the case with the First and Second Editions, is intended to provide the physician with the clearest, most comprehensive text available on the management of the diverse array of disorders of fluids and electrolytes, of acid-base and mineral metabolism, and of renal structure and function. An international group of authorities, including many who had contributed to the First and Second Editions, have lent their vision and expertise to this endeavor. In order to reflect the many changes of the past six years, original chapters have been revised or completely rewritten, and several new chapters have been added. Thus, Therapy of Renal Diseases and Related Disorders, Third Edition has a scope of coverage unrivalled by any other volume. Analytical aspects of diagnosis blended with practical therapeutic applications make this monumental new edition a standard for the late 1990s, and perhaps early into the next century. It will prove to be a frequently consulted reference that should be on the shelf of every specialist involved with kidney and urological disorders.

We are pleased to present to our readers the Proceedings of the Fourth International Workshop on Phosphate and Other Minerals which was held in Strasbourg during June 22-24, 1979. It was hosted by Professor Henri Jahn, Professor of Medicine and Chief, Department of Nephrology at the University of Strasbourg. These Workshops have become a tradition in the scientific scene of mineral metabolism. The meetings have been providing a unique framework for close interaction between scientists from various disciplines, such as nephrologists, endocrinologists, bio chemists, nutritionists, and those dealing with bone metabolism. The Workshops also created a forum for the delivery of original information, as well as state-of-the-art presentations on exciting topics of current interest in this evergrowing field of phosphate and mineral homeostasis. The Fourth International Workshop was attended by three hundred scientists from 15 countries including Austria, Canada, Denmark, England, France, Germany, Holland, Israel, Italy, Japan, Sweden, Switzerland and the United States of America. The topics discussed included those dealing with the renal handling of phos phate, calcium and magnesium, intermediary phosphate metabolism and phosphate homeostasis in health and disease. Two symposia were also presented: one dealt with nephrolithiasis and its rela tion to phosphate and the other with bone metabolism. In addition to 22 presentations by invited speakers, the Workshop provided 46 oral and 93 poster presentations selected from over 250 abstracts submitted to the Organizing Committee.

This translational text offers in-depth reviews of the metabolic and nutritional disorders that are prevalent in patients with renal disease. Chapter topics address the growing epidemic of obesity and metabolic syndrome. Each chapter integrates basic and clinical approaches, from cell biology and genetics to diagnosis, patient management and treatment. Chapters in sections 4-7 include new illustrative case reports, and all chapters emphasize key concepts with chapter-ending summaries. New features also include the latest National Kidney Foundation Clinical Practice Guidelines on Nutrition in Chronic Renal Failure, the most recent scientific discoveries and the latest techniques for assessing nutritional status in renal disease, and literature reviews on patients who receive continuous veno-venous hemofiltration with or without dialysis. Provides a common language for nephrologists, nutritionists, endocrinologists, and other interested physicians to discuss the underlying research and translation of best practices for the nutritional management and prevention of renal diseaseSaves clinicians and researchers time in quickly accessing the very latest details on nutritional practice as opposed to searching through thousands of journal articlesCorrect diagnosis (and therefore correct treatment) of renal, metabolic, and nutritional disorders depends on a strong understanding of the molecular basis for the disease – both nephrologists and nutritionists will benefitNephrologists and nutritionists will gain insight into which treatments, medications, and diets to use based on the history, progression, and genetic make-up of a patient Case Reports will offer an added resource for fellows, nutritionists, and dieticians who need a refresher course
