With color illustrations throughout, this book analyzes the implications that transplantation and immunosuppression can hold for patients. Discussing the many complications that may occur after kidney transplantation, this source is a must for anyone caring for patients recovering from this type of procedure.
This book presents state of the art knowledge on all aspects of kidney transplantation in recipients in whom desensitization strategies are necessary in order to overcome immunologic barriers such as anti-human leukocyte antigen (HLA) donor-specific antibody and ABO blood group incompatibility. Readers will find detailed, up-to-date information on the various immunomodulating therapies that may be employed in these circumstances and the outcomes that may be expected. Full guidance is provided on preoperative evaluation and management and post-transplantation care. In addition, the pathology of antibody-mediated rejection and acute cellular rejection in this context is discussed. For most patients with end-stage renal disease, kidney transplantation offers significant benefits compared with dialysis, but especially sensitization to HLAs remains a major clinical obstacle to success. Kidney Transplantation in Sensitized Patients will assist in achieving optimal results in individual patients. It will be an important resource for everyone involved in the care of kidney transplant recipients.
With detailed contributions from more than 40 leading authorities on the topic, this Third Edition comprehensively explores the immunobiology, pathophysiology, and clinical manifestations of graft-versus-host disease (GVHD)-offering sections revealing the most up-to-date research on immune activation and dysregulation, the pathophysiology of target organ damage, and GVHD prevention and treatment.
In the past, liver resections and liver transplantations were performed by different surgical teams, with very little interplay between the two. However, the evolution toward more complex operations called for an increasingly intense interaction between these surgical techniques: split liver and living donor liver transplantation have become popular in the transplant community, utilizing the Coinaud segmental anatomy in a very sophisticated way, while portal and arterial resection and reconstruction have become indispensable methods for treating Klatskin tumors infiltrating the hepatic hilum. This book offers a complete overview of the connections between liver transplantation and hepatobiliary surgery. It focuses on ex situ techniques for resection of tumors at the suprahepatic confluence, with or without venous reconstruction, and on total vascular exclusion of the liver with the aid of a venovenous bypass that should be a surgical option for referral centers in hepatopancreatobiliary surgery. By taking into consideration the development of minimally invasive liver surgery, it will introduce readers to a variety of new perspectives such as: vascular exclusion techniques with or without extracorporeal circulation, hemodynamic implications and lessons learned from liver transplant surgery, and technical details on pediatric transplantation and its informative role in modern biliary tract surgery.
This practical guide provides a full but concise account of the organ donation and transplantation process, from the management of the donor and organ preservation to perioperative management and surgical techniques. Readers will learn about various aspects of multi-organ retrieval such as different types of donors and evaluation of organ donors, as well as the retrieval process itself and ethical aspects of transplantation. Written in a consistent format, each of the themed parts examines the different types of solid organ transplantation, namely kindey, pancreas and liver. Each part discusses the indications for transplantation, organ allocation, surgical technique, post-operative management outcomes and professional skills for the surgeon. This is an essential guide for the transplant surgeon offering a unique summary of the critical issues in abdominal organ transplantation.
Intestinal transplantation remains on the cutting edge of solid organ transplantation. Each potential recipient provides a unique case of intestinal failure with individual intricacies requiring the combined efforts of a complex multidisciplinary team in order to achieve success. Contemporary Small Bowel Transplantation covers all aspects of intestinal transplantation in a manner accessible to all providers and provides specific guidance for those that may come in contact with this field and these patients. The text provides an understanding of the critical pre-operative evaluation, thorough descriptions of each surgical procedure and postoperative management. Areas such as infectious disease, nutrition and graft versus host disease will be addressed in detail. Key controversies and administrative issues unique to intestinal transplantation are covered. Contemporary Small Bowel Transplantation provides critical guidance for the new transplant surgeon, gastroenterologist or administrator as they navigate the challenging field of intestinal transplantation.
This book introduces the clinical application of ABO-incompatible transplantation. In the first part, it starts with the history, blood group antigen, antibody associated with ABO blood type, pathophysiology and pathology and related knowledge.
