Because of the progress in diagnostic transplantation pathology interpretation of transplant biopsies is increasingly becoming an attractive field for general surgical pathologists. The book focuses on the pathology of transplantation in the following organs: kidney, liver, lungs, heart, pancreas and small intestine. An introductory section addresses common entities that may complicate all transplant recipients such as infections, post-transplant lymphoproliferative disease and graft versus host disease, followed by 6 sections with detailed manifestations of rejection in each organ. This comprehensive, well-illustrated book serves the needs and meets the requirements of pathologists in training and those practicing in centers with limited volume of transplant biopsies in daily practice.

R2,065 Discovery Miles 20 650 Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

This book describes the multimodality imaging of cardiac, lung, liver, kidney, pancreas, and small bowel transplants in donors and recipients. The volume of transplantation of solid organs has increased substantially and has become common practice in medicine. Radiological evaluation of transplanted organs such as the heart, lungs, liver, pancreas, and kidneys is critical, both in potential donors (as is the case in liver and kidney transplantation) and in preoperative and postoperative evaluations of recipients. Understanding the often complex surgical anastomoses and unique pathology is necessary to inform radiologic interpretation. This book provides radiologists with the knowledge of the normal appearance of a transplanted organ, an understanding of imaging modalities that are best suited to answering clinical questions, an overview of the pathologies related to such organs and their appearance on various modalities, vascular and nonvascular complications, and techniques related to image-guided transplant interventions.

In the dark years of apartheid, a boy grew up in a household with a terrible secret: although they were all of mixed origins, they had managed to `pass as white'. Young Winston Wicomb, however, was far too dark to fit in, and had to be hidden whenever someone knocked on their door. After struggling through school and even managing to obtain an university degree, he still remained unemployed due to his skin colour. To make ends meet, he serviced cars in their backyard, but never stopped dreaming about escaping the restraints of Apartheid. Then fate intervened. While distributing pamphlets advertising his mechanical skills, he found Professor Chris Barnard stranded next to the road. He offered to help even though he had no experience with the new Mercedes the professor drove. Barnard, surprised at the success of Winston's efforts and impulsive as ever, offered Winston a job in his research lab. It is here that Winston applied his knowledge and experience of matters mechanical to eventually produce the world's first apparatus to transport a living heart over long distances. `Vital Remains' tells to story of an unlikely hero, a huge risk, achievement ... and love.

Kidney for Sale by Owner - Human Organs, Transplantation, and the Market (Paperback): Mark J. Cherry Kidney for Sale by Owner - Human Organs, Transplantation, and the Market (Paperback)

R439 R386 Discovery Miles 3 860 Save R53 (12%) Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

If most Americans accept the notion that the market is the most efficient means to distribute resources, why should body parts be excluded? Each year thousands of people die waiting for organ transplants. Many of these deaths could have been prevented were it not for the almost universal moral hand-wringing over the concept of selling human organs. Kidney for Sale by Owner, now with a new preface, boldly deconstructs the roadblocks that are standing in the way of restoring health to thousands of people. Author and bioethicist Mark Cherry reasserts the case that health care could be improved and lives saved by introducing a regulated transplant organs market rather than by well-meant, but misguided, prohibitions.

R1,275 R1,061 Discovery Miles 10 610 Save R214 (17%) Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

This book addresses important biomaterials which are commonly used to fabricate scaffolds and it describes two major protocols employed in scaffold fabrication. Tissue engineering or regenerative medicine aims at restoring ex-novo tissues and organs whose functionality has been compromised as a consequence of diseases or traumatic events. The innovative concept underlying tissue engineering is the use of autologous cells, obtained from a biopsy of the patient. Cells are seeded on a porous scaffold which has the role of supporting and guiding cells towards the development of tissue-like structures as well as providing a platform for the delivery under controlled condition of growth factor release, etc. The successful manufacture of scaffolds for tissue engineering applications is crucial. In this book, these biomaterials are discussed. The book also covers illustrated examples, structure and properties of scaffolds, cellular interactions and drug delivery.

Hematopoietic Stem Cell Transplantation (HSCT) is an established treatment for a variety of malignant and nonmalignant conditions. In autologous HSCT, the stem cells are collected from the patient then infused back after high dose chemotherapy. On the other hand, in allogeneic HSCT, the stem cells are donated from another individual (who may be related or unrelated and unmatched or matched). In this book, the authors present new research in the study of hematopoietic stem cells including pulmonary complications following HSCT; psychological health and adjustment of families of children who undergo HSCT; the immunogenetics of unrelated HSCT for thalassemia; HSCT for inflammatory bowel diseases; and extramedullary hematopoiesis leading to the production of a novel antigen-presenting cell type in the murine spleen.

The Origins of Organ Transplantation - Surgery and Laboratory Science, 1880-1930 (Paperback): Thomas Schlich The Origins of Organ Transplantation - Surgery and Laboratory Science, 1880-1930 (Paperback)
Thomas Schlich
R469 R442 Discovery Miles 4 420 Save R27 (6%) Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

This book investigates a crucial -- but forgotten -- episode in the history of medicine. In it, Thomas Schlich systematically documents and analyzes the earliest clinical and experimental organ transplant surgeries. In so doing he lays open the historical origins of modern transplantation, offering a new and original analysis of its conceptual basis within a broader historical context. This first comprehensive account of the birth of modern transplant medicine examines how doctors and scientists between 1880 and 1930 developed the technology and rationale for performing surgical organ replacement within the epistemological and social context of experimental university medicine. The clinical application of organ replacement, however, met with formidable obstacles even as the procedure became more widely recognized. Schlich highlights various attempts to overcome these obstacles, including immunological explanations and new technologies of immune suppression, and documents the changes in surgical technique and research standards that led to the temporary abandonment of organ transplantation by the 1930s. Thomas Schlich is Professor and Canada Research Chair in the History of Medicine at McGill University.

Currently more than 100,000 patients undergo blood and marrow transplantation (BMT) annually worldwide, a number which is steadily increasing. Long-term survival after BMT has improved significantly since its inception over 40 years ago, due to improved supportive care and early recognition of long-term complications. With broadening indications, more options for BMT, and improvement in survival, by 2020 there may be up to a million long-term survivors after BMT globally. Higher than average rates of second malignancies and cardiopulmonary, infectious, endocrine, and renal diseases, and bone loss or avascular necrosis amongst this population suggest that the rapidly swelling ranks of BMT survivors require more frequent screening and earlier interventions than the general population. The purpose of Blood and Marrow Transplantation Long-Term Management is to describe practical approaches to screening for and managing these late effects, with the goal of reducing preventable morbidity and mortality associated with BMT. This unique new book is the first to address the needs of the increasing population of long-term survivors after stem cell transplantation, making it a must-have resource for all oncologists, hematologists, and primary care physicians involved in the long-term management and care of BMT patients.

This book depicts the basic aspects of all surgeries for kidney transplantation in both adults and children, including procurement of kidney, preparation of the kidney graft, vessel reconstruction, kidney implantation in various conditions and the diagnosis and management of surgical complications post-transplant. This book also describes the surgery for kidney transplant with abnormal lower urinary tract; the surgery for third or subsequent kidney transplant and the surgery for transplant nephrectomy by the extra capsule or intra capsule technique. Furthermore, it has been emphasized that early recognition of vascular complications is critical in order to avoid the kidney graft loss. This book provides numerous images to illustrate the abnormal findings during the investigation of kidney graft, in order to facilitate prompt diagnosis and management of post-transplant complications. Moreover, the different techniques in management of urological complications are discussed such as Boari flap urinary tract reconstruction. This book also introduces advanced laparoscopic surgery for kidney implantation. The authors share their experiences in developing the large animal training model and early clinical experience. Importantly, editors invited Professor Modi to contribute to the chapters on laparoscopic kidney transplant and robotic kidney transplant. Professor Modi is a well-known pioneer in advanced laparoscopic kidney transplant and robotic kidney transplant. Last but not least, the assessment of live kidney donor has been thoroughly discussed based on the review of the guidelines from a few societies. The surgery for donor nephrectomy by either transperitoneal or retroperitoneal approach has been well illustrated in details with pictures. This book is written based on the authors' 20 years' experience in kidney transplantation. It is hoped to be helpful for transplant fellows and junior transplant surgeons.

This book focuses on patients with end-stage-liver disease (ESLD) who could possibly qualify for liver transplant. This patient cohort raises many problems: who should be treated and also, when is it too late for transplant? The authors are all dedicated experts in the field of ESLD/liver transplantation, but from different disciplines with different views of the problem. In the past 15 years many things have changed in the treatment for these patients: cardiac assessment, treatment of porto-pulmonary hypertension, hemodynamics, coagulation assessment and management, diagnosis of kidney failure, and the timing of dialysis. These issues are comprehensively discussed in this book, in order to provide physicians starting in the field of transplantation an overview of different areas of concern. This book is aimed at specialists and trainees in critical care, hepatology, anesthesia, surgery, and nephrology.
