Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“This is an excellent and thorough resource on kidney and pancreas transplantation. It will be useful for young training surgeons as well as physician extenders, OR staff, transplant coordinators, and all members of the transplant team looking for a quick yet complete source of information to clarify any questions they may have.” (Doody’s, 15 March 2013)

“These are minor points and the Editors should be congratulated for producing an excellent and accessible handbook that can be strongly recommended to all members of transplant teams, irrespective of whether they are based in Europe or elsewhere.” (American Journal of Transplantation. 1 January 2013)

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Jason R Wellen, MD, MBA (Washington University School of Medicine)
Description: This is an update on the intricate coordination required of all members of the transplant team to help ensure long-term survival of transplant patients.
Purpose: The authors successfully present an insightful book to describe the many aspects of transplantation, ranging from operating room setup and detailed operative descriptions, to immunosuppressive drugs and the diagnosis and management of postoperative complications.
Audience: The book is intended to assist young training surgeons, as well as physician extenders, operating room personnel, coordinators, and transplant physicians. The editors are experienced transplant surgeons.
Features: The book begins with a brief description of the important players in the field, i.e. United Network for Organ Sharing (UNOS). It then moves on to an overview of waiting times, grafts and patient survival, OR setup, and instruments used in the operation. It then discusses how to adequately evaluate a pretransplant patient, covering the topic of immunosuppressive medications. It details the operation as well as all potential complications that could arise. Overall, it is quite thorough. However, one shortcoming is the lack of clarity in many of the black-and-white images, such as those in the pathology sections and the ultrasound chapter.
Assessment: This is an excellent and thorough resource on kidney and pancreas transplantation. It will be useful for young training surgeons as well as physician extenders, OR staff, transplant coordinators, and all members of the transplant team looking for a quick yet complete source of information to clarify any questions they may have.
