Cancer in Organ Transplant Recipients (Paperback, Softcover reprint of the original 1st ed. 1991): Dietrich Schmahl, Israel Penn Cancer in Organ Transplant Recipients (Paperback, Softcover reprint of the original 1st ed. 1991)
Dietrich Schmahl, Israel Penn
R2,023 Discovery Miles 20 230 Special order

In about 5% of all organ (kidney, liver) transplant recipients, malignancies occur as a late complication of the massive immunosuppression. The malignancies are mainly skin cancers, lymphomas and renal carcinomas. The present book discusses the possible mechanisms of this type of tumorigenesis and inquires into possibilities of prevention. In particular, the described malignancies might be of viral origin. The book informs about a completely new type of carcinogenesis. Apart from the scientific aspects, it is of great practical value.

The Economics of Kidney Transplantation (Hardcover): Yavuz Demirdoegen The Economics of Kidney Transplantation (Hardcover)
Yavuz Demirdoegen
R2,650 Discovery Miles 26 500 Special order

Over the last century, the world witnessed outstanding advancements in the field of surgery and organ transplantation, with success ratios reaching 80% to 90%. There is, however, a huge difference between the number of organs available for transplantation and the number of people in need of transplantable organs. Over the past few decades, the gap has grown dramatically, and the systems mentioned are insufficient to balance the supply and demand of transplantable organs and, specifically within the scope of this book, the shortage of kidneys. This book primarily aims to calculate the costs of dialysis and/versus transplantation, and to focus on the benefits of increasing the number in donations. The number of donations is further used in a sensitivity analysis of economic gains by increase in donations. Another sensitivity analysis of the effect of monetary incentive by changing the value of statistical life (VSL). The purpose of this study is to make a contribution to health literature by calculating the costs and benefits of kidney transplantation. Although there is a system, there is also a system failure. Current systems are insufficient in terms of reducing prolonged waiting lists. Therefore, this book proposes an alternative system that would help increase kidney donations and transplantations. The proposed system would also heavily suppress the black market that abuses the world's poor. While monetary incentive could be effective for increasing organ donation, every year almost 5 to 10 percent of kidney transplantations are facilitated by organ trafficking.

Post-transplant lymphoproliferative disorders are a group of conditions that straddle the borders between infection and malignancy. They were very rare prior to the mid-1980s but now can be expected to develop in 1-10% of transplant recipients. While some cases are reversible with reduction in immunosuppression, more severe forms are indistinguishable from frank lymphomas. This book sets out to cover in depth every aspect of these disorders, including both basic science and clinical topics. The epidemiology is reviewed, and careful attention is paid to the role of Epstein-Barr virus in their development. Clinical features are documented and clear guidance is provided on diagnosis, with thorough description of pathologic and imaging findings. Further chapters are devoted to treatment, prognosis, preventive and pre-emptive strategies, and organ-specific considerations. The state-of-the-art information contained in this book will aid researchers as well as the many different professionals involved in caring for patients with post-transplant lymphoproliferative disorders. The comprehensive and detailed coverage will appeal to those who already have some expertise in the field, yet the book will also serve as an invaluable resource for beginners in transplantation.

Transplanting Human Tissue - Ethics, Policy and Practice (Hardcover, New): Stuart J. Youngner, Martha W. Anderson, Renie... Transplanting Human Tissue - Ethics, Policy and Practice (Hardcover, New)
Stuart J. Youngner, Martha W. Anderson, Renie Schapiro
R877 Discovery Miles 8 770 Special order

The use of human tissue for transplantation is becoming a billion-dollar business. This book is the first comprehensive exploration of the American tissue transplantation industry. It traces the chain of distribution of musculoskeletal tissue (e.g. bones and ligaments) and skin from the generous donation of grieving families to its transplantation into hundreds of thousands of persons each year. Commodification, commercialization, and the occasional use of tissue for "cosmetic" surgery have raised ethical questions about the acceptability of "markets" in human body parts that have been altruistically donated by families. Inevitably, questions about the informed consent and the need for responsible stewardship by the industry have been raised, often in the Press.

The book provides a comprehensive background to these ethical problems by explaining the historical development, breadth, and organization of the tissue industry, including the technical developments that have made it simultaneously clinically relevant and an attractive market for investment capital. It explores the similarities and differences in how government regulates other tissues and solid organs (such as hearts and kidneys). Contributions to the book come from an interdisciplinary group of scholars, industry representatives, government regulators, and, not least, families who have donated tissue from their dead loved ones.

R2,891 Discovery Miles 28 910 Special order

This series has now established itself as the leading publication on the multi-disciplinary subject of tissue banking. The high quality of the contributors and the broad coverage of the subject have continued in Volume 4. The material given in this volume is not presented anywhere else as systematically or as authoritatively.

The essential feature in establishing confidence in the quality and safety of allografts is the manufacturing quality system utilised. This volume describes the most recent approach to good manufacturing control.

Throughout the world, the old cottage approach to tissue banking is being abandoned, mainly due to the insistence by regulatory authorities that he procedures should be standardised and rigorous infection control applied. The experience in a number of counties is described in this volume, giving the reader quick access to developments in Argentina, Finland, Indonesia, Scotland and France. These represent a geographical and cultural spread of the developments.

A balance needs to be struck between the use of allografts and of bone substitutes, depending on the clinical condition and the availability of grafts in a particular situation. The subject areas -- such as mandibular reconstruction, spinal surgery, surgery and reconstruction of bone tumours and acetabular revision -- covered in this volume demonstrate the universality of this technique. The use of allografts of the repair of knee ligaments has been and remains a controversial subject. The contributions on this subject will surely be and important and positive addition to this debate.

Death, Dying, and Organ Transplantation - Reconstructing Medical Ethics at the End of Life (Hardcover): Franklin G. Miller,... Death, Dying, and Organ Transplantation - Reconstructing Medical Ethics at the End of Life (Hardcover)
Franklin G. Miller, Robert D. Truog
R1,425 Discovery Miles 14 250 Special order

In Death, Dying, and Organ Transplantation: Reconstructing Medical Ethics at the End of Life, Miller and Truog challenge fundamental doctrines of established medical ethics. They argue that the routine practice of stopping life support technology in hospitals causes the death of patients and that donors of vital organs (hearts, lungs, liver, and both kidneys) are not really dead at the time that their organs are removed for life-saving transplantation. These practices are ethically legitimate but are not compatible with traditional rules of medical ethics that doctors must not intentionally cause the death of their patients and that vital organs can be obtained for transplantation only from dead donors.
In this book Miller and Truog undertake an ethical examination that aims to honestly face the reality of medical practices at the end of life. They expose the misconception that stopping life support merely allows patients to die from their medical conditions, and they dispute the accuracy of determining death of hospitalized patients on the basis of a diagnosis of "brain death" prior to vital organ donation. After detailing the factual and conceptual errors surrounding current practices of determining death for the purpose of organ donation, the authors develop a novel ethical account of procuring vital organs. In the context of reasonable plans to withdraw life support, still-living patients are not harmed or wronged by organ donation prior to their death, provided that valid consent has been obtained for stopping treatment and for organ donation.
Recognizing practical difficulties in facing the truth regarding organ donation, the authors also develop a pragmatic alternative account based on the concept of transparent legal fictions. In sum, Miller and Truog argue that in order to preserve the legitimacy of end-of-life practices, we need to reconstruct medical ethics.

Cardiac transplantation is a widely accepted therapy for the treatment of end-stage congestive heart failure. Most candidates for cardiac transplantation have not been helped by conventional medical therapy and are excluded from other surgical options because of the poor condition of the heart. About 45 percent of the candidates have ischemic cardiomyopathy; however, this percentage is rising because of the increase in coronary artery disease in younger age groups. Of the candidates, 54 percent have some form of dilated cardiomyopathy, which often has an unclear origin. The remaining one percent of candidates fall into the category of other diseases, including congenital heart disease, that are not amenable to surgical correction. Candidacy determination and evaluation are key components of the process, as is post-operative follow-up care and immunosuppression management. This book presents leading research from around the world.

One of the most spectacular medical advances of the 20th century, organ transplantation has become a generally effective and routine treatment for patients with organ failure. In this book, a well-known expert in the fields of clinical transplantation and transplantation research traces the evolution of organ transplantation from its initial stirrings in the imaginations of the ancients to its status as accepted treatment for nearly 40,000 patients each year. Drawing often on his own first-hand experience, Dr Nicholas Tilney tells the story of the advances in organ transplantation, discusses how societal forces have driven its development, and reveals how its current success is marred by commercialism and exploitation of the less fortunate. kidney transplant in 1954 between identical twins, the scientific advances for suppressing the immune system, the introduction of the concept of host tolerance, research on donor matching, and the issue of donor brain death. He explores innovations in heart, lung, liver and other abdominal transplants and reflects on the attempts to make transplants between species. Finally he explains how organ transplantation has become a vast business, creating ethical and logistical conflicts about organ donations.
