Radiology of organ transplantation. St. Louis: Mosby Year Book, © (OCoLC) Online version: Radiology of organ transplantation. St. Louis: Mosby Year Book, © (OCoLC) Document Type: Book: All Authors / Contributors: Janis G Letourneau; Deborah L Day; Nancy L Ascher. Organ transplant is becoming an increasingly popular and life-saving method to treat organ failure. Since , the number of solid organ transplants performed in children has increased from 1, to 1, in 1 While the number of transplants has increased, so too has the demand for organs. There are currently 2, pediatric patients on the waiting list for an organ transplant. 1Author: Alexander J. Towbin, Richard B. Towbin, Carlo Di Lorenzo, Ronald G. Grifka. An introductory section addresses such issues as organ procurement, patient selection, immune responses, and ethical and economic considerations. The main part of the book then offers in-depth coverage of heart, renal, liver, lung, bone marrow and pancreatic and intestinal transplantation. This volume provides a thorough and informative account of the use of diagnostic and interventional radiology in liver transplantation. Following introductory chapters on surgical and radiological anatomy, separate sections are devoted to organ donors and to adult and pediatric recipients.
Written by international experts, this resource lays out the moral, legal and ethical restraints to using donors after cardiac death for organ transplant, together with the techniques that have been adopted to improve their outcome. The different approaches and results of renal transplant according to country are covered along with the procedures and outcomes adopted to use other organs. The book will primarily be of value to radiology departments in major centres involved with liver transplantation." (Dr. D R Foster, RAD Magazine, Vol. 29 (), ), From the reviews: "This book focuses on recent advances in the field of radiological imaging and interventional radiology in patients undergoing liver Rating: % positive. Background. In Poland transplantation of organs is conducted since the end of the ties and within the last 10 years the number of transplanted organs amounted to approx. per annum .In there were transplantations of organs including from the dead donors ( kidneys, livers, 79 hearts, 17 lungs, 20 pancreases, 3 forearms) and 70 organs of living donors . Solid Organ Transplantation: Past, Present, and Future Challenges.- Heart Transplantation.- Renal Transplantation: Epidemiological, Clinical, Radiological and Surgical Considerations.- Liver Transplantation.- Lung Transplantation.- Bone Marrow Transplantation.- Imaging in Pancreas and Intestinal Transplantation. Series Title: Medical radiology.
Brought to you by the world’s leading transplant clinicians, Textbook of Organ Transplantation provides a complete and comprehensive overview of modern transplantation in all its complexity, from basic science to gold-standard surgical techniques to post-operative care, and from likely outcomes to considerations for transplant program administration, bioethics and health policy. This volume on liver transplantation is unique in the range of its coverage. Following introductory chapters on surgical and radiological anatomy, separate sections are devoted to organ donors and to adult and pediatric recipients. Surgical indications and techniques, the role of radiological modalities, and the treatment of complications are all fully discussed and illustrated. Dr. Piyasena is a 4th-year Radiology Resident and Dr. Allison is the Director of the Radiology Residency Program and the Director of Ultrasound, Department of Radiology, Georgetown University Hospital, Washington, DC.. Prolonged graft survival as a result of improvements in surgical techniques and immunosuppressive drugs has led to an increased number of organ transplantation surgeries. The book also presents current and emerging data processing procedures. As the field of tissue engineering moves from creating simpler outer body parts to more sophisticated internal organs, researchers need to evaluate and control how well the tissues are .
