  • A comprehensive new guide to the impact of chronic kidney disease on mineral homeostasis, the skeleton, vascular calcifications, and mortality
  • Fully-updated, including new hormones, FGF-23 and klotho, and new treatment agents, calcimimetics, calcilytics, vitamin D analogs, and more to manage both conditions simultaneously
  • Reflects new understanding of the relation of renal bone disease and cardiovascular disease
  • Now in full colour throughout, including numerous colour illustrations

Despite significant improvement in the management of patients with chronic kidney disease, the morbidity and mortality remain high. However more is now understood about the hormonal influence on bone and vascular structures, and there have been major advances in the field of bone and mineral metabolism. This has lead to the development of new treatment strategies and agents.

This new second edition reflects the most current thinking and understanding in this fascinating field, as presented by world basic and clinical experts.
