Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Venkataraman Ramachandran, MD (Washington University School of Medicine)
Description: This book is part of the series  "A Companion Series To Specialist Surgical Practice."
Purpose: It aims to keep the busy surgical practitioner and surgical trainees abreast of the current developments in solid organ transplantation and research. In view of the rapid progress in this field, such a synopsis is much needed.
Audience: The broad scope of the book should make it valuable to a variety of medical professionals including pre-and post-transplant coordinators, pharmacists, nutritionists, and organ bank personnel. It would form a good resource for the general surgical trainee giving him or her a concise overview of the field. Trainees and fellows in critical care, cardiology, nephrology, and hepatology would also find this book informative and relevant to the clinical management of transplant patients.
Features: The material throughout the book is drawn from the extensive clinical experience of the contributors. The entirety of solid organ transplantation from donor issues to socioeconomic impact is covered. Each chapter is carefully written and edited and forms an excellent review of the subject. A few well-labeled line diagrams are used to illustrate the text and explain some of the difficult concepts. The book is easy to read and important clinical issues and controversies are appropriately discussed. The information is well referenced with pertinent reviews and a few landmark articles. There are between 15 and 50 references for each chapter, and although the bibliography is not exhaustive, a great deal of care has been taken to include recent literature. The subject matter of each chapter is well formatted, relevant tables and figures are well displayed.
Assessment: Although the research issues and directions are not discussed, the main feature of this book is its clinical relevance and it forms good reading for anyone caring for transplant patients.
