A classic nephrology reference for over 25years, Seldin & Giebisch’s The Kidney, is the acknowledged authority on renal physiology and pathophysiology. In this 5th edition, such new and powerful disciplines as genetics and cell biology have been deployed to deepen and widen further the explanatory framework. Not only have previous chapters been extensively updated, but new chapters have been added to incorporate additional disciplines. Individual chapters, for example, now provide detailed treatment of the significance of cilia; the role of stem cells is now given special consideration. Finally, there has been a significant expansion of the section of pathophysiology, incorporating the newer findings of cell biology and genetics. If you research the development of normal renal function or the mechanisms underlying renal disease, Seldin & Giebisch’s The Kidney is your number one source for information.

  • Offers the most comprehensive coverage on the market of fluid and electrolyte regulation and dysregulation in 85 completely revised chapters and 10 new chapters.
  • Includes 4sections, 62 chapters, devoted to regulation and disorders of acid-base homeostasis, and epithelial and nonepithelial transport regulation.
  • Includes foreword by Donald Seldin and Gerhard Giebisch, world renowned names in nephrology and editors of the previous three editions.

Book News
The first edition of this reference was published in 1985. The fifth edition is extraordinarily hefty--two volumes, and a total of more than 3,000 pages--necessitating a convenient low shelf or a dedicated table. Production is excellent, with pages that lie flat when the books are opened and paper that is substantial but not overly heavy. Ninety-five chapters are arranged across the two volumes under four broad themes: epithelial and nonepithelial transport and regulation; structural and functional organization of the kidney; fluid and electrolyte regulation and dysregulation; and pathophysiology of renal disease. The three editors are affiliated as follows: Robert J. Alpern and Michael Caplan (Yale U. School of Medicine), and Orson W. Moe (U. of Texas Southwestern Medical Center at Dallas).

Elsevier
A classic nephrology reference for over 20 years, Seldin & Giebisch’s The Kidney, is the acknowledged authority on renal physiology and pathophysiology. The fourth edition follows the changed focus of nephrology research to the study of how individual molecules work together to affect cellular and organ function, emphasizing the mechanisms of disease. With over 40 new chapters and over 1000 illustrations, this edition offers the most in-depth discussion anywhere of the physiologic and pathophysiologic processes of renal disease. Comprehensive, authoritative coverage progresses from molecular biology and cell physiology to clinical issues regarding renal function and dysfunction. If you research the development of normal renal function or the mechanisms underlying renal disease, Seldin & Giebisch’s The Kidney is your number one source for information.
  • Offers the most comprehensive coverage on the market of fluid and electrolyte regulation and dysregulation in 51 completely revised chapters.
  • Includes 3 sections, 31 chapters, devoted to regulation and disorders of acid-base homeostasis, and epithelial and nonepithelial transport regulation.
  • Includes foreword by Donald Seldin and Gerhard Giebisch, world renowned names in nephrology and editors of the previous three editions.
