Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Eric N. Mendeloff, MD (St Louis Children's Hospital)
Description: This handbook represents a collaborative effort on the part of a variety of leaders in the field of cardiac transplantation.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide a review of the current thinking and clinical approach to heart transplantation. Performance of heart transplantation has become relatively ubiquitous, and its role is being continuously redefined. In addition, the literature is filled with an explosion of information on new and ongoing research in transplantation and the intimately associated field of immunology. This book meets its goal of providing an up-to-date perspective on the issues centrally related to preoperative evaluation, perioperative care, and postoperative follow-up of patients undergoing orthotopic heart transplantation.
Audience: The book is written on a level that can be read by medical students, residents, and medical and surgical staff involved with the care of this population of patients.
Features: The authors make good use of graphs, tables, and surgical illustrations to successfully convey and elaborate on the material covered in the text. In addition, an extensive and relatively up-to-date bibliography is provided at the end of each chapter.
Assessment: This handbook is a very helpful resource for students, residents, and practitioners involved in the field of heart transplantation. A thorough and readable review of the important clinical concepts is provided by a variety of contributors prominent in the world of heart transplantation. The authors achieve their end point of making a handbook by not including an excessive quantity of basic science material that can make textbooks on the subject laborious.
