About this book

This book focuses on patients with end-stage-liver disease (ESLD) who could possibly qualify for liver transplant. This patient cohort raises many problems: who should be treated and also, when is it too late for transplant? The authors are all dedicated experts in the field of ESLD/liver transplantation, but from different disciplines with different views of the problem.

In the past 15 years many things have changed in the treatment for these patients: cardiac assessment, treatment of porto-pulmonary hypertension, hemodynamics, coagulation assessment and management, diagnosis of kidney failure, and the timing of dialysis. These issues are comprehensively discussed in this book, in order to provide physicians starting in the field of transplantation an overview of different areas of concern.

This book is aimed at specialists and trainees in critical care, hepatology, anesthesia, surgery, and nephrology.

Reviews

“This is a worthy contribution to a growing field. … its various manifestations provide valuable insights to the team caring for liver patients whether or not they ultimately come to transplant. The outstanding reference lists in the chapters provide an excellent literature review.” (David J. Dries, Doody's Book Reviews, July 05, 2019)
