About this book

This well-illustrated handbook provides answers to important questions that may arise during the retrieval of multiple organs for transplantation and offers step-by-step descriptions of current surgical techniques for procurement of the various thoracic and abdominal organs, including heart, lung, liver, intestine, pancreas, and kidney. The coverage includes detailed instruction on liver splitting techniques and on living donor liver hepatectomies and laparoscopic and robot-assisted nephrectomy for transplantation. In addition, guidance is provided on preoperative evaluation for multiorgan donation, contraindications, management for organ retrieval in deceased donors, and organ preservation. The advice offered and the questions addressed will be of relevance not only to transplant surgeons, trainees, and fellows but also to all other professionals involved in organ transplantation, including nursing staff in intensive care units and emergency rooms. 

About the authors

Paolo Aseni, after his degree in Medicine at the University of Milan in 1975, trained abroad in different centers in Germany and France: at the Medizinische Hochshule in Hannover and in Zentrum für Experimentelle Medizin in München in 1978, then in the next years, at the Hôpital Beaujon in Paris and in Hôpital Paul Brousse in Villejuif. Since 1980, he has been working at the Department of Surgery and Transplant Center in Niguarda Hospital in Milan, Italy. He is currently Associate Surgeon and responsible for the surgical training in Medicina d’Urgenza – Emergency Department in the same hospital. Since 1989, he has been also Assistant Professor for Anatomy and Human Macroscopic Morphology, University of Medicine, Milan.

Antonino M. Grande earned his degree in Medicine at the University of Pavia (Italy) in 1980. He trained abroad at the Department of Cardiovascular Surgery, Texas Heart Institute, Houston, Texas, USA, from 1982 to 1984 and then in Marseille (France). Since 1986, he has been working as attending surgeon at the IRCCS Fondazione Policlinico San Matteo in Pavia, Italy, in the Cardiac Surgery – Heart and Lung Transplant Department. Dr. Grande has also over 25 years of experience in cardiovascular postoperative intensive care; his main clinical interests include heart failure, heart/lung transplantations, and mechanical circulatory support. Between 2000 and 2010, he has been Assistant Professor for Surgical Anatomy at the University of Pavia.

Luciano De Carlis got his degree in Milan in 1979 and trained as visiting fellow at the Transplant Surgery Center in Pittsburgh (USA) in 1984, in 1987, and again in 1988, studying particular aspects in the field of liver, kidney, pancreas, heart, and heart-lung transplantation. Another important experience abroad, this time as visiting professor, was at the University of Tokyo in 2001. Prof. De Carlis has been working since 1985 at the Niguarda Hospital in Milan, Italy, specializing in particular in the field of renal, hepatic, and pancreatic transplantation. He is currently Professor of Surgery at the University of Milano-Bicocca School of Medicine, and Director of the Department of Surgery and Transplant Center at the Niguarda Hospital in Milan, where he introduced the fi rst adult living donor liver transplantation program in Italy and, recently, the fi rst Italian liver transplant program from “donation after cardiac death”.

Reviews

“The purpose is to provide a step‐by‐step description of organ procurement. This is a worthy goal because the major textbook of transplantation has a rather outdated and very concise review of organ donation. The book does a good job of reviewing the entire process from donor evaluation, to ethical concerns, to technical aspects of the procedure, to organ preservation solutions. This is probably more meaningful for physician assistants and residents/fellows. … The pictures are excellent.” (Krishna G. Putchakayala, Doody's Book Reviews, June, 2016)


“This book, “Multiorgan Procurement for Transplantation. A Guide to Surgical Technique”, contains a wealth of data and information on the organ procurement procedures that constitute the first steps in organ transplantation. … Practical advice often is provided to the reader in the form of answers to commonly asked questions. The result is a book that is an easy read for transplant surgeons, trainees, and fellows.  It also is a source of important information for nurses and all other professionals involved in organ transplantation, including those in the emergency room, intensive care unit, and wards.  Whether interested or not in transplantation, all young surgeons can profit from this textbook … .” (Thomas E. Starzl, M.D., Ph.D., Professor of Surgery, University of Pittsburgh)
