Organ Transplantation

A Clinical Guide

Organ Transplantation

Organ Transplantation: A Clinical Guide covers all aspects of transplantation in both adult and pediatric patients. Cardiac, lung, liver, kidney, pancreas and small bowel transplantation are discussed in detail, as well as emerging areas such as face and pancreatic islet cell transplantation. For each organ, chapters cover basic science of transplantation, recipient selection, the transplant procedure, anesthetic and post-operative care, and long-term follow-up and management of complications. Important issues in donor selection and management are also discussed, including recruitment and allocation of potential donor organs and expanding the donor pool. Summary tables and illustrations enhance the text, and long-term outcome data are provided where available. Written by expert transplant surgeons, anesthetists and physicians, Organ Transplantation: A Clinical Guide is an invaluable multidisciplinary resource for any clinician involved in transplantation, providing in-depth knowledge of specialist areas of transplantation and covering the full range of management strategies.


'… provides an excellent overview of modern transplantation medicine. The increasing number of organ recipients and their improved longevity means that many more non-specialists will need to be aware of the considerations in such patients. As such, this book is particularly suitable for the general physician or intensivist. Similarly, with the growth in donation after circulatory death, healthcare professionals working with patients at the end of life will find this book valuable reading. The strength of this book is the breadth of its coverage coupled with an accessible level of detail.' Dr Julia Wendon, Senior Lecturer in Hepatology/Intensive Care Medicine, Kings College London, and Clinical Director of Intensive Care, Kings College Hospital, London
