Editorial Reviews

`The standard reference book for the artificial kidney world.'
`The aim of the authors - to produce a standard text for nephrologists and those with an interest in today's treatment of renal failure - is fully achieved.'
Urological Research
`A superb book ... the detail and depth of discussions are unequalled in any current nephrology text.'
