The third edition follows the successful format of the first two manuals with sections on presenting problems, diagnostic and therapeutic techniques, and management of specific problems.
Manual of Canine and Feline Nephrology and Urology, 3rd Edition
A series of new chapters has been added explaining how other systemic diseases (or drug treatments) affect the kidney, influencing diagnostic tests or contributing to kidney damage. We hope these will aid practitioners in considering the kidney when tackling cardiovascular and endocrine disorders and when treating osteoarthritis.
A fresh look has been taken at many of the tried and tested chapters by inviting new authors to provide their perspectives on these familiar topics. The number of clinical experts from Europe and the United States who are actively publishing original clinical research papers in nephrology and urology has grown in recent years, so we have had no difficulty in identifying new truly international experts as authors.
Diagnosing and managing various lower urinary tract disorders in companion animals has evolved immensely over the past 10 years, particularly with the advances in minimally invasive procedures. For example, the use of laser ablation for the correction of ectopic ureters in dogs has meant far fewer surgical procedures for this anomaly. Minimally invasive stone removal was one of the highlights discussed in the ACVIM Consensus Statement for Recommendations on the Treatment and Prevention on Uroliths in Dogs and Cats in 2016, and many of these recommendations are discussed in the manual, including voiding urohydropropulsion, holmium:YAG laser lithotripsy and percutaneous cystolithotomy. With the advent of ureteral stents and subcutaneous ureteral bypass procedures, we now have alternative and often better ways to manage obstructive kidney disease in cats and dogs, and details are provided in this new edition. The most recent medical management strategies for urolithiasis prevention are also provided in a dedicated chapter. Finally, this edition provides a comprehensive overview as well as various updates on other aspects of lower urinary tract disorders, which make these sections a valuable resource for students and practitioners, as well as various veterinary specialists.
