Reviews

“This book is strongly recommended for professionals working in the area of paediatric organ transplantation. It offers a theoretical and practical overview of the unique ethical, practical and legal issues in paediatric transplantation … . Topics are scholarly and well researched, elegantly presented, with the scientific rigor of an academic publication. … this book will contribute to building awareness and anticipating problems in this field with a view to instituting policy and protection of a vulnerable paediatric population.” (Olinda Timms, The National Medical Journal of India, Vol. 30 (3), May- June, 2017)

“This book is an important contribution to the literature both in pediatric transplantation and transplantation ethics. … it is certainly one that should be available in every pediatric center’s library and available to all members of the various transplant programs.” (R. B. Ettenger, American Journal of Transplantation, January, 2017)
