Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Unprecedentedly rapid advances in the areas of both immunosuppression and surgical technique not only have made cardiac transplantation the gold-standard surgical therapy for end-stage heart disease, but have also challenged practitioners to keep thoroughly up-to-date. In Cardiac Transplantation: The Columbia University Medical Center/New York-Presbyterian Hospital Manual, leading physicians summarize in this easy-to-use and eminently practical handbook the day-to-day management of transplant donors and recipients at Columbia-Presbyterian Medical Center. Topics covered range from surgical techniques, pathology, and immunosuppression, to posttransplant management, pediatric heart transplantation, surgical alternatives, and mechanical circulatory assistance as a bridge to transplantation. The authors also discuss congenital transplant techniques, state-of-the-art perioperative management techniques and protocols, UNOS regulation, and nurse coordination. Comprehensive and state-of-the art, Cardiac Transplantation: The Columbia University Medical Center/New York-Presbyterian Hospital Manual offers transplant clinicians and nurses a clinically relevant, hands-on guidebook to patient management from leading surgeons at one of the world's premiere heart transplant centers.

Book News Annotation:

Since cardiac transplantation began at Columbia-Presbyterian Medical Center in 1977, the program has completed 1,542 transplants, making it one of the largest transplant centers in the world. In this text, 20 specialists contribute 12 chapters reflecting the day-to-day practice of clinicians in the management of transplant donors and recipients at Columbia-Presbyterian. Coverage includes recipient and donor selection, management of the high-risk donor, United Network for Organ Sharing policy and transplant coordination in practice, cardiac transplantation in adults, transplantation for congenital heart disease, pediatric transplantation, posttransplant management, immunosuppression, long-term outcomes, surgical alternatives to transplantation, and mechanical circulatory assistance as a bridge to transplantation.
