Review quote

`The chapters are well-written, well-indexed, and provide a broad and comprehensive account of renal transplantation on a worldwide basis, in addition to local protocols. ... Overall, this is an excellent book on renal transplantation. The superb results that the Belfast unit has achieved over the years should make it a compelling book to be read by all medical personnel who are interested in transplantaion as a method of renal replacement therapy.'
Dialysis & Transplantation, May 1994

`This is a comprehensive and easily readable book .... The figures and the illustrations nicely complement the text.
Overall, this book is nicely presented and should be recommended as an introduction guide for junior doctors, internists or nephrologists not familiar with renal transplation.'
Acta Clinica Belgica, 49, 2 (1994)
