Book Description:
The first edition of Comorbidities in Chronic Kidney Disease is focused on the main clinical syndromes associated with renal failure. Chronic kidney disease (CKD) and end-stage renal disease (ESRD) are characterized by a wide spectrum of comorbidities, potentially complicating patients’ clinical outcomes.

In this volume, both editor and authors have planned a complete review of the main clinical syndromes associated with renal injury and failure.

The first chapter is dedicated to epidemiological aspects of chronic kidney disease, and also introduces risk factors and associated comorbidities.

Arterial hypertension and cardiovascular diseases are actually accountable as major risk factors for developing renal disease, and the next chapter is mainly focused on the latest trials in this field.
The following chapter is dedicated to pathophysiology, diagnosis and treatment of dyslipidemia and atherosclerosis in patients with declined renal function.

The subsequent chapter is exhaustively focused on the clinical features of secondary hyperparathyroidism and the disease’s complications on kidneys, bone, vessels and heart, from early laboratory findings ‘to severe vascular and heart valvular calcifications.

The section that succeeds reflects on secondary anemia and consequent cardiorenal anemia syndrome with particular attention on the latest treatment schedules.

Coronary artery disease is also discussed, especially for those concerned with clinical features and laboratory diagnosis in chronic kidney disease patients with impaired clearance of coronary acute syndrome biomarkers.

Cardiorenal syndrome and sudden cardiac death are well-established clinical aspects in CKD patients, and they are discussed both in terms of pathophsysiological and clinical features.

The book finally ends with two sections on hepato-renal syndrome and contrast-induced nephropathy (CIN). CIN represents daily challenges for all nephrologists because due to the large amounts of instrumental diagnostic tests and an increasing number of chronic kidney disease patients involved.

This volume could be appreciated both by nephrologists and all clinicians involved in chronic patients’ management due to schematic and practical editing and form. (Imprint: Nova Biomedical)


Book Reviews

“Dr. Carroll and Dr. Spiegel are to be congratulated for editing this authoritative book on catatonia. While this mysterious syndrome was identified in 1874, it continues to baffle psychiatrists unfamiliar with its symptoms, etiology, and treatment. The book was written specifically for C-L psychiatrists, who probably see the majority of cases. Not only does the book discuss its history and nosology (recently changed in DSM-5), but fully describes its assessment. Algorithms are provided that provide a carefully stepped approach to treatment. Because the syndrome is uncommon (though individual symptoms are not), and patients are often unresponsive, it is unlikely that controlled trials can ever be performed. With that in mind, the book provides the best observational data available to help guide treatment planning. Hats off to Dr. Carrol and Dr. Spiegel.” - Donald W. Black, MD, Professor, Residency Training Director, Vice Chair for Education, Department of Psychiatry, University of Iowa Roy J. and Lucille A. Carver College of Medicine, IA
