Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“Overall, this is a nice summary of abdominal transplantation, its advances, and where the field still needs to improve. In an ever-evolving field, this book is comparable to other reviews of abdominal transplantation, but is unique in its summary of up-to-date immunosuppression techniques.”  (Doody’s, 17 May 2013)

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Erin C Maynard, MD (Washington University School of Medicine)
Description: This is a unique book covering an array of topics in transplantation of abdominal organs.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide an update of this field as well as a discussion of innovations currently taking place.
Audience: The intended audience includes both active practitioners in abdominal transplantation as well as trainees. It is hard for any book to appeal to both these groups and, although this is nice refresher, it is more appropriate for trainees in the field and would make a nice guide for medical students encountering transplant for the first time.
Features: It covers advances in everything from living donor selection and robotic techniques to immunosuppression. It is a nice review, but it could be improved with more images and graphs.
Assessment: Overall, this is a nice summary of abdominal transplantation, its advances, and where the field still needs to improve. In an ever-evolving field, this book is comparable to other reviews of abdominal transplantation, but is unique in its summary of up-to-date immunosuppression techniques.
