Abstract
Kidney Cancer: Principles and Practice is a comprehensive and interdisciplinary textbook that encompasses all clinically relevant aspects of the disease. This new edition has been extensively updated and includes brand new material covering the most recent developments in kidney cancer diagnosis and therapy. The user-friendly and clinically oriented content of the book guarantees that it will be of great interest to a wide range of medical professionals, and every effort has been made to ensure that contributions are both easy to understand and directly related to patient care. Content presentation departs from the usual dense chapter format featuring a lengthy series of paragraphs. Instead, each chapter contains several boxed sections, including one that summarizes essential "take home points" for the busy clinician and another that presents a patient-oriented case highlighting the clinical application of elements discussed in that chapter. In addition, accessible original images, illustrations, and diagrams (some in full color) are used to simplify particularly complex material. This book will be of value for clinicians, researchers, residents, fellows, students, and knowledgeable lay people. The contributors comprise an international group of authors with expertise in kidney cancer epidemiology, molecular biology, pathology, diagnosis, clinical features, staging, prognostic and predictive factors, surgery, systemic therapy, and emerging investigational approaches, among others.
Contents
Part I. Epidemiology and Biology -- Epidemiology of Kidney Cancer -- Pathological Classification -- Molecular Biology of Kidney Cancer -- Biomarkers for Kidney Cancer -- Genetic Heterogeneity of Kidney Cancer -- The Metabolic Basis of Kidney Cancer. Part II. Clinical Considerations -- Clinical Presentation and Staging -- Hereditary Kidney Cancer -- Part III. Surgical and Local Control Modalities -- Surgical Approaches to Early Stage Kidney Cancer -- Cytoreductive Nephrectomy -- Metastasectomy -- Energy Ablative Techniques in Kidney Cancer -- The Role of Radiation Therapy in Kidney Cancer -- Part IV. Systemic Therapy Considerations -- Adjuvant Systemic Therapy -- Cytokines and Vaccine Therapy -- PD1 and PDL1 Targeted Therapy -- Angiogenesis Inhibitor Therapy -- The Role of mTOR inhibitors and PI3K Pathway Blockade -- Sequential versus Combination Strategies -- Presurgical Therapy in Kidney Cancer -- Toxicity Management for Patients on Targeted Therapies -- Emerging Agents in Kidney Cancer.

Abstract
The kidney is an organ with complex organogenesis susceptible to numerous misadventures in development and is exposed to a diverse array of insults of hematogenous and lower urinary tract origin. This Atlas of Medical Renal Pathology provides an overview of the development, macroscopic and microscopic features of the normal kidney. This is followed by a comprehensive survey of developmental and cystic kidney diseases, vascular diseases and tubulointerstitial diseases. An emphasis is placed on gross diagnostic findings with detailed histological correlates. In addition, the histological, immunofluorescent, immunohistochemical and ultrastructural features of the major glomerular diseases and renal transplantation pathology are presented. This compendium of non-neoplastic kidney diseases illustrates the vast majority diseases you are likely to encounter in surgical and autopsy pathology.

Abstract
The kidneys participate in all vital processes of the body to maintain overall homeostasis and health. When kidneys are injured during surgical interventions, metabolic and hemodynamic control is disrupted, leading to dysfunction associated with greater mortality, length of hospital stay, and cost. Peri-operative Kidney Injury presents the epidemiology, risk factors, diagnosis, treatment, and outcomes associated with kidney injury during the peri-operative period. Concepts and principles of care to prevent kidney complications during surgical procedures are provided to equip health care professionals along with strategies to manage acute kidney injury and associated challenges when they occur. Chapters detail diverse surgical settings, ranging from the more common, such as abdominal, cardiac, and vascular surgeries, to the intricately complex, including the use of the left ventricular assist device and organ transplants. This practical and comprehensive text blends the evidence-based standards of care with cutting edge advances in the field, while also providing the reader with a peek into innovations on the horizon.
