Living Donor Organ Transplantation

JAMA. 2008;300(13):1592-1593. doi:10.1001/jama.300.13.1592

This is the first edition of a comprehensive, multiauthored book on living-donor organ transplantation that is destined to quickly become a classic in the field. The book is divided into 4 parts. Parts 1 and 2 address cultural, ethical, legal, and other donor issues such as counseling, informed consent, advocacy, and paid organ donation. Part 3 comprises the bulk of the book and details administrative issues as well as presurgical and postsurgical care of donors and recipients of living kidney, pancreas, liver, and intestinal transplants. All aspects of selection, workup, anesthesia, and surgical and medical therapy are expertly addressed. Part 4 focuses on future developments and alternative approaches.
