Transplantation meets the needs of surgeons in higher training and practising consultants for a contemporary and evidence-based account of this sub-specialty that is relevant to their general surgical practice. It is a practical reference source incorporating the most current information on recent developments, management issues and operative procedures. The text is thoroughly referenced and supported by evidence-based recommendations wherever possible, distinguishing between strong evidence to support a conclusion, and evidence suggesting that a recommendation can be reached on the balance of probabilities.

This is a title in the Companion to Specialist Surgical Practice series whose eight volumes are an established and highly regarded source of information for the specialist general surgeon.

• A standardised approach is used across the series to provide up-to-date information in a way that will be consistent and familiar to the reader.

• Each volume gives a current and concise summary of the key topics within each major surgical sub-specialty.

• Each volume highlights evidence-based practice both in the text and by also identifying the key papers in the extensive list of references at the end of every chapter.

• An expanded authorship team across the series includes additional European and World experts with an increased emphasis on global practice.

• The contents of the series have been extensively revised in line with recently published evidence.

• Modern techniques in transplantation and new forms of immunosuppression are emphasised throughout this volume.
• The substantial interest in new organ perfusion and in the preservation techniques in organ donation and transplantation are reflected in a new chapter written by an international expert.
• All the chapters reflect transplant care as a multi-disciplinary team of clinicians working in a collaborative fashion.
