Reviews

From the reviews:

“The purpose is to provide a summary of the many changes that have occurred in the field of kidney transplantation over the last few years … . The audience includes nephrologists, internists, or nonspecialists (in training or practice) who are involved or have an interest in kidney transplantation. … This is an easy-to-read book that provides useful information on the most recent advances in kidney transplantation. … I would recommend this book to anyone in medicine who has an interest in kidney transplantation.” (Ana Lia Castellanos, Doody’s Book Reviews, September, 2013)

“Provide a clear, concise and transparent overview of renal transplantation, suitable as a primer for most trainees in nephrology and transplantation. The chapters are well written, the right length and concentrate on key concepts in transplantation, including histocompatibility, donor and recipient work-up, immunotherapies and early and late allograft dysfunction, with illustrations and tables used throughout to good effect. This book can be recommended to those in their first year of transplantation training and to allied health-care professionals with an interest in transplantation.” (Behdad Afzali, British Journal of Hospital Medicine, August, 2012)
