About this book

This practical guide provides a full but concise account of the organ donation and transplantation process, from the management of the donor and organ preservation to perioperative management and surgical techniques.

Readers will learn about various aspects of multi-organ retrieval such as different types of donors and evaluation of organ donors, as well as the retrieval process itself and ethical aspects of transplantation. Written in a consistent format, each of the themed parts examines the different types of solid organ transplantation, namely kindey, pancreas and liver. Each part discusses the indications for transplantation, organ allocation, surgical technique, post-operative management outcomes and professional skills for the surgeon.

This is an essential guide for the transplant surgeon offering a unique summary of the critical issues in abdominal organ transplantation.

Reviews

“Transplant surgical subspecialists are the intended readers. The book is appropriate for this audience, providing a summary of general practice in this specialty. … This is a nice pocket summary/overview of the key issues related to organ management and procurement and liver, kidney, and pancreas transplantation.” (Kelly M. Collins, Doody's Book Reviews, November 22, 2019)
