Review quote

'... provides an excellent overview of modern transplantation medicine. The increasing number of organ recipients and their improved longevity means that many more non-specialists will need to be aware of the considerations in such patients. As such, this book is particularly suitable for the general physician or intensivist. Similarly, with the growth in donation after circulatory death, healthcare professionals working with patients at the end of life will find this book valuable reading. The strength of this book is the breadth of its coverage coupled with an accessible level of detail.'
