Most clinically important advances in nephrology reported in 1997 occurred in four areas: hypertension and the role of simple treatment measures, delay of progression of end-stage renal disease in nondiabetic patients, screening for microalbuminuria, and effects of common hospital practices on electrolyte metabolism. Each article reviewed here was chosen by one of the authors and reviewed by the other. The importance of the study results to clinical practice and sound research methods were the major guides to study selection.
