This second edition of the introduction to the field of organ
transplantation provides an excellent overview of the tremendous
progress made in recent decades, and gives a clear description of
the current status of transplant surgery for students and trainees
with an interest in this field. It opens with introductory chapters
on the history of transplantation and the basic science of
immunobiology, and then examines through an organ-based structure
the practice of transplantation in each major system, from skin to
intestine. There is a 13-year gap between the first and second
edition, and this is highlighted in the new collection of chapters
of this updated version. This is a timely publication produced in
line with the rapidly advancing field of transplantation.The
editor, Nadey S Hakim, is a consultant transplant and general
surgeon at Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust, London, England,
and has put together this second volume that will serve as an
invaluable guide for transplant surgeons as well as trainees.
