Acute liver failure (ALF), or fulminant hepatic failure, is a distinct clinical syndrome which crosses medical disciplines. A relatively rare condition, ALF remains a major focus of clinical and research attention and with the advent of transplantation, the importance of understanding management of ALF has taken on a new urgency. In this 1997 volume, the editors bring together a distinguished team of contributors to describe the aetiology, pathology and treatment of this important syndrome. Also covered are consensus techniques in liver transplantation for ALF patients, as well as descriptions of artificial and bioartificial liver assist devices. A section on future treatments includes hepatocyte transplantation, auxiliary grafts and other temporary liver support. Notable for the high level of authors' expertise, this comprehensive volume should prove invaluable to internists, gastroenterologists, surgeons, and intensive care providers.
