Product description

Renal Transplantation has been written for use by trainees, doctors and nurses who are exposed to renal transplant patients and their donors. It is a practical, comprehensive guide to all aspects of renal transplantation. Every phase of donor and recipient care, from assessment to the transplant operation to post-transplant management, is included, with chapters covering essential background information and up-to-date management guidelines. Additional chapters include information on transplant immunology, tissue typing, immunosuppression and antibody incompatible transplantation. There are also chapters devoted to the most recent developments, particularly the increasing number of transplants from living donors, and strategies to perform 'high risk' transplants.

Review quote

Most medical students consider the Oxford Handbook of Medicine to be their 'bible' and this book is destined for a similar status amongst both trainees and consultants in renal medicine or transplantation surgery. It is written in a style which is ideal for exam preparation as well as being a handy reference to dip in and out of. Immunology News ...the book is very informative, thorough and ideal for understanding the principles...a pocket bible for a renal transplant trainee Urology News Like all of the books in this series it is an outstanding source of rapid reference. BMA Medical Book Competition an excellent book and a very welcome addition to the renal transplantation literature...recommended to anyone joining a renal transplant unit for the first time; it will be invaluable to you. The book is also relevant to those who are studying for the MRCS and for the final exit examination in General Surgery, with or without an interest in transplantation. Surgeon's News
