This volume includes all procedures and practices relating to the selection of organ donors, removal of organs, preservation and allocation for a successful transplantation. The improving preservation solutions as well as the improving survival rates of transplant patients should make it a useful book on all aspects of transplantation. The chapters are divided into four sections: donor conditioning and surgery; organ preservation; allocation and logistics; ethics and legislation in organ donation. The growing awareness of the need for organ donation and adaptation of laws, as well as the increasing efforts of the transplantation organizations to stimulate organ donation, makes this text a timely publication. This book is aimed at medical specialists in any hospital involved, or potentially involved, in organ procurement, transplant co-ordinators and administrators, transplant surgeons, nephrologists and other organ specialists and researchers. The chapters on surgical techniques are illustrated with original artwork by Bernard Tardieu.
