Almost every practising doctor will admit to difficulty in knowing how best to investigate, treat and advise the pregnant patient with renal problems. These doubts and difficulties may be exacerbated if the patient seeks pre-pregnancy advice – would a possible pregnancy cause a deterioration in renal function, what are the risks of the pregnancy for mother and baby? As the general public become more informed on medical matters these questions are being asked more frequently and doctors must be prepared to offer advice which is based on detailed factual knowledge. This book examines some of these increasingly common clinical problems. Each chapter has been written by a recognized expert in the field and provides the type of specific information now expected by discerning patients. The advances in treatment of the last decade clearly indicate that a knowledge of pregnancy and renal disorders is essential for doctors in many branches of medical practice.
