About this book

This pocket guide provides a concise yet comprehensive overview of the two most prominent clinical features of multiple myeloma (MM), bone disease and renal failure. The first half of the text reviews critical aspects of bone disease in MM, including pathophysiology, the use of imaging modalities and drugs in treatment, and the role of orthopedic surgery. The latter half of the book reviews major components of kidney disease in MM, from pathophysiology to treatment. 

Written by experts in the field, Management of Bone Disease and Kidney Failure in Multiple Myeloma: A Pocket Guide is a valuable resource for clinicians and practitioners who manage patients afflicted with multiple myeloma.
