Description

A comprehensive, technique-oriented guide to abdominal organ transplantation

A Doody's Core Title for 2011!

Valuable to the seasoned and novice transplant surgeon as well as the multidisciplinary team that tends to both the living donor and the recipient of abdominal organs, Living Organ Donor Transplantation puts the entire discipline in perspective while guiding you step-by-step through the most common organ transplant surgeries.

Organized into four cohesive parts and featuring numerous surgical illustrations, this sourcebook delivers an incisive look at every key consideration for general surgeons who perform transplantations, from patient selection to recipient workup and outcomes, and emphasizes the most humanitarian approaches.

Features:

  • The first A-to-Z, operation-oriented guide to the field of living donor organ transplantation
  • Unparalleled examination of a wide spectrum of solid organ transplantation procedures (liver, pancreas, kidney, intestine), with accompanying chapters on the history of the procedure, the donor, the recipient, and cost analysis
  • Skill-building coverage of techniques that explains adequate pretransplant workup and posttransplant care
  • Chapters on cultural differences, ethical and legal issues, social issues, current financial incentives, and the illegal organ trade
  • Up-to-date survey of the future possibilities of organ transplantation, covering new immunosuppressive protocols, xenotransplantation, gene therapy, organogenesis and therapeutic cloning, and more
  • Reflections from pioneers in the field
