Eines steht spätestens nach der Lektüre dieses Buches fest: Innere Medizin ist nicht langweilig! Die Nephrologie mit ihren vielen Schnittpunkten zu anderen Fachgebieten bietet dem Praktiker schier unerschöpflichen Raum zur Wissensvertiefung und Selbstentfaltung. Christine Kellers Praxis der Nephrologie berücksichtigt außer den klassischen internistischen Fragestellungen, zum Beispiel im Rahmen des Diabetes mellitus oder der Hypertonie, auch die diffizilen praktischen Probleme im Zusammenhang mit der Dialyse und der Nierentransplantation.
Das Buch beginnt naturgemäß mit der Darstellung der normgerechten Nierenanatomie und -funktion und schildert dann das allgemeine diagnostische Vorgehen. Spannend wird es bei den glomerulären Nierenerkrankungen (mit der notorischen Verwechslung von Nephrotischem und Nephritischem Syndrom wird hier gründlich aufgeräumt) und erst recht bei den Systemerkrankungen mit Nierenbeteiligung. Dabei verliert sich der textual content keineswegs in theoretischen Abhandlungen etwa zur Pathophysiologie der Rheumatoiden Arthritis oder der Sarkoidose -- used to be ja an dieser Stelle für den Wissenschaftler verlockend wäre --, sondern hält sich strikt an die für die nephrologische Praxis wichtigen und belegten Fakten. Zur Hochform läuft das Buch beim Thema Dialyse auf: Nach einem so praktischen Leitfaden mit allen Formeln, Faustregeln und Richtwerten für den klinischen Alltag muss guy sonst lange suchen. Das Kapitel zur Transplantation glänzt mit einer hervorragenden Darstellung der Transplantationsimmunologie und immunsuppressiven Therapie; das rein chirurgische Vorgehen spielt hier natürlich nur eine untergeordnete Rolle.
Einen ausgezeichneten Eindruck hinterlässt auch die ausführliche tabellarische Übersicht über alle gängigen Präparate mit ihrer veränderten Pharmakokinetik bei Niereninsuffizienz im Anhang des Buches. Ohnehin machen die Abschnitte zur Pharmakotherapie, zur Schwangerschaft sowie zur Arteriellen Hypertonie allgemein das Werk für jeden Hausarzt und Internisten und nicht zuletzt auch für den ambitionierten Medizinstudenten interessant. Wer sich auf nephrologischem Gebiet fortress- oder weiterbilden möchte, wird an diesem erstklassigen Band nicht vorbeikommen. --Philipp-R. Schulz
