About this Book

There has been very little written on the interaction of the liver and kidney. This book addresses the increasing incidence and significance of diseases, such as ascites, renal dysfunction, cirrhosis and hypertension where both organs are involved.

This textbook is essential, even for confirmed practitioners and contains current information regarding treatment and therapy for patients with cirrhosis and ascites, clearly and effectively presented by the top international experts within this field.

The second edition is entirely revised and updated and places greater emphasis on therapy.
