Challenges and Controversies in Kidney Transplantation Hardback
by Sandip Kapur
Challenges and Controversies in Kidney Transplantation highlights the most up-to-date strategies for successfully managing high-risk kidney transplant recipients, as well as detailed, innovative strategies to increase transplant opportunities for patients requiring kidney transplantation. The book is divided into two major sections; firstly, Maximizing Transplant Opportunities, and second, Considerations for Unique/High Risk Patient Populations focusing on management of select patient populations, such as children, the elderly, HIV, Hepatitis C positive patents, highly sensitized patients, and patients who develop post-transplant polyomavirus nephropathy.
Surgical topics include Laparoendoscopic Single Site and Robotic Donor Nephrectomy as minimally invasive surgical procedures to increase living donation, and the use of Paediatric Donor Kidneys in deceased donor kidney transplantation.
In addition, Challenges and Controversies in Kidney Transplantation also features discussion on the most difficult clinical management issues confronting Kidney Transplantation today, making it a relevant and essential reference for nephrologists, neurologists and residents.
