About this book

Peritoneal dialysis represents an intracorporeal technique for blood purification. This unique dialysis system represents one of many human attempts to manipulate nature for sustenance of life. Recent advances have focused on further improvement of the technique. Areas that have fueled the interest of researchers include: (1) Physiology of high transporters (and the role of genetics and inflammation); (2) Continued debate over the most appropriate adequacy indices (small solute clearances, large solute clearances, clinical assessment etc.); (3) Understanding, preventing and treating the MIA syndrome in PD patients ( including the roles of leptin, and adiponectin); (4) Pathogenesis and newer management strategies of vascular calcification; (5) Continued improvements in infectious complications including peritonitis; (6) Further improvements in catheter technology; (7) Automated techniques; (8) Explaining and correcting PD underutilization; (9) Rationale and applications of newer dialysis solutions; (10) New understanding and approaches to management of osteodystrophy; (11) Refinements in anemia management including new insights in iron metabolism in PD patients; (12) Further definition of indications for PD; (13) The ideal time to initiate dialysis.

Nolph and Gokal's Text Book of Peritoneal Dialysis, 4th Edition will cover advances made in this field since 2007. During the past decade, the time during which this therapy has been increasingly utilized, the 3rd Edition has continued to be recognized as the major source of the discipline's base knowledge. The evolution of this text to its newest edition parallels the growth of peritoneal dialysis from Continuous Ambulatory Peritoneal Dialysis in the eighties to the current therapy that encompasses manual and automated therapies with full emphasis on adequacy of dialysis dose. Textbook of Peritoneal Dialysis is perhaps the most in-depth publication on this dialysis technique. The first starting place for anyone wanting to know PD as a dialysis therapy, or for those already practicing PD to find information to support its wider use. This book will be easy-to-read, current and topical. It should be available to everyone practicing PD. Nowhere else can one find such a broad and detailed description of the modality of PD in one volume.  It has been close to eight-ten years since the 3rd edition was published. There have been many advances in the field including technology, treatment methods, complications and many more.
