Renal Transplantation has been written for use by trainees, doctors, and nurses who are exposed to renal transplant patients and their donors. It is a practical, comprehensive guide to all aspects of renal transplantation. Every phase of donor and recipient care, from assessment to the transplant operation to post-transplant management, is included, with chapters covering essential background information and up-to-date management guidelines. Additional chapters include information on transplant immunology, tissue typing, immunosuppression and antibody incompatible trransplantation. There are also chapters devoted to the most recent developments, particularly the increasing number of transplants from living donors, and strategies to perform "high risk" transplants.
