Nephrology is the area of clinical medicine that studies of normal and pathological physiology of the kidney, renal diseases, their treatment and prevention.
In Nephrology for the diagnosis of kidney disease are, in addition to the biochemical analysis of blood and urine, methods excretory urography (see), radioisotope renografii (see Radioisotope diagnostics) and scanning (see), puncture biopsy of the kidney, renal angiography and other Introduction in practice of artificial kidneys (see artificial Kidney) and peritoneal dialysis (see), and in recent years transplantation of the kidney can be successfully treated patients with renal insufficiency.

Clinical Nephrology

In the monograph, which consists of 18 chapters, some questions of symptomatology, diagnosis, pathogenesis and treatment of major diseases of the kidneys. The monograph is written on the basis of the literature analysis and data obtained during 10 years of work led by the author of the clinics and laboratories.
In chapters I-V consistently set forth the doctrine of proteinuria, functional diagnostic methods, the nature and methods of the study of renal acidosis, x-ray research methods and the estimation method of puncture biopsy of the kidneys. In VI-IX chapters understand pathogenesis, diagnostics and treatment of nephrotic syndrome clinic and over diffuse glomerulonephritis, the influence of pregnancy, put forward the original concept about the combination of diffuse glomerulo - and pyelonephritis. Chapter X devoted to the analysis and classification errors clinical diagnosis of major diseases of the kidneys. The problem of Kidneys and blood system, including coagulation" dedicated to the XI-XII Chapter. A special Chapter examines the question about the ratio of mineral and glucocorticoid function of the adrenal gland and kidney diseases. The last section of the book (Chapter XIV-XVIII) include summary data about the dietetics different forms of glomerulonephritis, corticosteroid therapy, conservative treatment for renal hypertension, correction of renal acidosis and treatment of anomie in renal failure.
The monograph is illustrated 69 pictures and equipped with bibliographic index chapters.
