This is the true story of a man who rose from the depth of poverty to become a pioneer in modern medicine. Born in a small village in Iraq, and raised by a poor family, he met and conquered many adversities in his pursuit of a better living and his goal of becoming a physician. His chosen path was briefly derailed when he was granted a full scholarship to study engineering in United Kingdom, but he eventually came back to a successful career in medicine, becoming a leader in organ transplantation, one of the most innovative fields in modern medicine. Unfortunately, he became the victim of his own success when his achievements created animosity in his colleagues, who waged a political war and booted him to another country thousands of miles away. In his voluntary exile, he refused to be defeated and ultimately emerged stronger than ever. When forced to relocate yet again, his fame preceded him to the United States of America, where he has continued his mission to the present day. This book is a snapshot of the professional and personal life of a surgical innovator and pioneer. It is set in the background of a previous era in British, North American and international surgery. But what was his life like? How did he reach the pinnacle of success? Find out in this book.

This book provides a summary of the various aspects of corneal transplantation - the clinical, experimental (including multimedia display of the surgical techniques), immunological, therapeutic and prosthetic components - in one volume. The interested specialist in one field can thus have access to information from the other fields and develop a broad concept of the challenges to be faced in achieving the ultimate goal, i.e. an optically clear, visually satisfactory, functioning corneal graft which is tolerated in the long term without the need for systemic immunosuppression. A second purpose of the book is to provide information regarding current immunological concepts of the process of corneal graft rejection. In particular, recent work in the fields of innate versus adaptive immunity, novel therapeutics and corneal xenografts is presented.

Transplantation Ethics (Paperback, Revised): Robert M. Veatch Transplantation Ethics (Paperback, Revised)
Robert M. Veatch
R821 Discovery Miles 8 210 Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

Three decades after the first heart transplant surgery stunned the world, organs including eyes, lungs, livers, kidneys, and hearts are transplanted every day. But despite its increasingly routine nature-or perhaps because of it-transplantation offers enormous ethical challenges. A medical ethicist who has been involved in the organ transplant debate for many years, Robert M. Veatch explores a variety of questions that continue to vex the transplantation community, offering his own solutions in many cases.

Ranging from the most fundamental questions to recently emerging issues, "Transplantation Ethics" is the first complete and systematic account of the ethical and policy controversies surrounding organ transplants. Veatch structures his discussion around three major topics: the definition of death, the procurement of organs, and the allocation of organs. He lobbies for an allocation system-administered by nonphysicians-that considers both efficiency and equity, that takes into consideration the patient's age and previous transplant history, and that operates on a national rather than a regional level.

Rich with case studies and written in an accessible style, this comprehensive reference is intended for a broad cross section of people interested in the ethics of transplantation from either the medical or public policy perspective: patients and their relatives, transplantation professionals, other health care professionals and administrators, social workers, members of organ procurement organizations, and government officials involved in the regulation of transplants.

Xeno - The Promise of Transplanting Animal Organs into Humans (Hardcover): David K.C. Cooper, Robert P. Lanza Xeno - The Promise of Transplanting Animal Organs into Humans (Hardcover)
David K.C. Cooper, Robert P. Lanza; Foreword by Robin Cook
R1,384 Discovery Miles 13 840 Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

The majority of patients in need of organ transplants do not survive long enough for a suitable human organ to become available. Xenotransplantation, the transplant of animal organs into humans, has attracted substantial media attention. If, as appears likely, it proves possible to "humanize" animal organs and evade the problems of rejection, in the coming few years there will be a tremendous increase in this procedure, mostly using organs from animals specifically for their harvestable organs. This book will lay out the potential and promise of the technique, the history of organ transplantation, the technical problems and breakthroughs in overcoming immune rejection, and typing and humanizing donor organs for transplantation. The ethical question of growing animals specifically for organ harvest, and the substantial public health concern from the certainty that animal viruses will pass into humans with the donated organs, will be fully discussed. The authors are among the leaders in the field of Xenotransplantation.

Die vorliegende Habilitationsschrift untersucht die Hypothese, dass die Pumpstorung des Herzens bei Herzinsuffizienz, extrakorporaler Zirkulation und fruh nach Herztransplantation eine gemeinsame immunologische Komponente umfasst. Die direkten Beziehungen zwischen dem Immunsystem und den klassischen Determinanten der kardialen Pumpfunktion, d.h. der Vorlast, Nachlast, Kontraktilitat und Herzfrequenz, werden kritisch diskutiert. Sie werden als mogliche gemeinsame biologische Endstrecke verschiedener pathophysiologischer Konstellationen, von der asymptomatischen linksventrikularen Dysfunktion bis hin zum Sepsis-Syndrom und Multi-Organ-Versagen, interpretiert. Die vorliegende Arbeit, die im interdisziplinaren Konzept des Herzzentrums Munster entstand, stellt einen originellen fachubergreifenden Denkansatz dar. Dieser ist fur Kardiologen, Herzchirurgen, Anasthesiologen und Intensivmediziner gleichermassen von Bedeutung. Er wird in Zukunft im arztlichen Alltag zu einem verbesserten Verstandnis der kardialen Pumpstorung unterschiedlicher Genese sowie zur Entwicklung von neuen Moglichkeiten der Erkennung und Behandlung beitragen.

The possibility of treating patients with organ replacement therapy has created a new frontier in medical care. Hospitals have to deal with such vital issues as selecting potential recipients of transplants, ensuring equity in allocating organs, pre- and peri-transplantation care of patients, and post-transplantation follow-up of organ recipients. The decisions pertaining to these issues often fall to social workers, who, with their bifocal concern for individuals and society, have significant contributions to make. Here, Dhooper reviews the contributions of the few social workers in this field and suggests ways of improving their work, consolidating their professional gains, and maximizing their impact. Dhooper discusses all aspects of organ transplantation, and explores and proposes new social work roles and appropriate skills for involvement at the individual, organizational, and community levels. He deals with the larger moral, societal, economic, and technical issues, as well as the here-and-now concerns of the social worker. Recommended for social workers trained for practice in the 1990s and beyond, and particularly those specializing in health and mental health social work.

The developments that have occurred in the field of organ transplantation during the 1980s and early 1990s, and the simultaneous rise and fall of the Jarvik-7 artificial heart are the subject of this vividly written and absorbing new volume. In Spare Parts, fascinating, interconnected stories of organ transplantation and the artificial heart are recounted in an interpretive framework that explores the vision of the "replaceable body." Themes of uncertainty, gift exchange, and the allocation of scarce material and non-material resources underscore a discussion that openly examines the escalating ardor about the goodness of repairing and remaking people with transplanted organs. Likewise, the stories open questions of life and death, identity, and solidarity. This important book offers insights into the symbolic and anthropomorphic meanings associated with the human body and its organs, and into the ways that medical professionals come to terms with the concomitant aspects of transferring vital body parts. Both artificial and donor organs, as well as the process of transplantation, are the subject of a thoughtful discussion which touches on the medical myths and rituals that they generate. Chronologically, Spare Parts begins where the authors' previous book, The Courage to Fail, leaves off. More than a sequel, however, this work reflects their increasingly troubled and critical reactions to the expansion of organ replacement. Likely to be controversial, this book is must reading for bioethicists, medical sociologists and anthropologists, health-care lawyers, planners and administrators, nurses and physicians, medical journalists and science writers, and concerned lay readers.

This book shows how new technologies and technical skills together with deeper understanding of pathophysiology of visceral and renal ischemia have contributed to significant improvements in the clinical outcomes in patients undergoing complex aortic repair involving splanchnic arteries. In recent years, aortic repair has expanded its borders, focusing more and more on the particularly challenging segments from which critical branches originate. Optimal results in this area are obtained through a multidisciplinary approach based on crucial elements such as sophisticated imaging techniques, advanced anesthesiological and pharmacological strategies, as well as updated surgical techniques and devices able to reduce ischemic injuries. The book presents problems tackled from different perspectives, by analyzing the main technical aspects of the surgical technique but also functional and metabolic issues. It also discusses concepts such as ischemic preconditioning and ischemia-reperfusion mechanisms, as well as innovative investigational approaches. In the "endovascular era", it highlights the most recent updates in complex endovascular repair involving renal and visceral arteries, providing both practical tips and tricks and outcomes analyses. The volume also addresses specific, rarely reported problems in vascular surgery, including issues in renal transplant, oncologic surgery with involvement of splanchnic arteries and of the vena cava, and use of the deep veins in aortic surgery. This volume represents a powerful tool for both young and experienced operators who wish to approach the complex aortic pathology either by open surgery or through endovascular methods."

Tendon Transfers to Restore Opposition of the Thumb (Paperback, Softcover reprint of the original 1st ed. 1970): J. M. Ramselaar Tendon Transfers to Restore Opposition of the Thumb (Paperback, Softcover reprint of the original 1st ed. 1970)

R2,237 Discovery Miles 22 370 Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

In man and some of the apes, the thumb has the function of a contra finger. This function is made possible by a great freedom of movement of the first metacarpal and a highly developed and differentiated thumb musculature. The grasp function of the hand is dependent on the oppositional capacity and adductive power of the thumb, and is severely limited by a paralysis or dysfunction of the intrinsic thumb muscles. Whereas loss of the function of the adductor pollicis can be partially compensated for by the adductive action of the extensor pollicis longus, in paralysis or dysfunction of the radial thenar muscles compensation can only be provided by surgery. Since 1918, many methods of tendon transfer have been described for the restoration of thumb opposition, all of which bring about an improvement of the grasp function, albeit to different degrees. These methods vary in the selection of the motor, the direction of pull of the tendon, the use of a fulcrum, and the mode of insertion. The highly effective method of Bunnell (1938) is often used as the standard procedure. With this method, the flexor superficialis tendon of the ring finger is looped around the tendon of the flexor carpi ulnaris and passed subcutaneously across the thenar eminence, after which it is fixed on the thumb at the level of the metacarpo-phalangeal joint."

R1,518 Discovery Miles 15 180 Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

Although the history of organ transplant has its roots in ancient Christian mythology, it is only in the past fifty years that body parts from a dead person have successfully been procured and transplanted into a living person. After fourteen years, the three main issues that Robert Veatch first outlined in his seminal study Transplantation Ethics still remain: deciding when human beings are dead; deciding when it is ethical to procure organs; and deciding how to allocate organs, once procured. However, much has changed. Enormous strides have been made in immunosuppression. Alternatives to the donation model are debated much more openly -- living donors are used more widely and hand and face transplants have become more common, raising issues of personal identity. In this second edition of Transplantation Ethics, coauthored by Lainie F. Ross, transplant professionals and advocates will find a comprehensive update of this critical work on transplantation policies.
