Description - Medical Care of the Liver Transplant Patient by Paul G. Killenberg

Medical Care of the Liver Transplant Patient looks at monitoring and maintaining the health of organ recipients and donors, pre, during and post-operatively. There are twenty-nine chapters containing practical advice on total patient management. They are arranged into 8 sections and follow the stages of transplantation from first indication and selection of potential recipient, through to acute recovery, long-term follow-up and continued health. In this edition there are new chapters on special considerations in liver transplant patients such as viral hepatitis, alcoholic liver disease and live donor liver transplantation. It also contains the very latest information concerning complications and recurring problems after transplantation. Another new chapter considers fresh approaches and developments in the future. This is a vital reference to all members of the medical team involved at different stages in the care of liver transplantation patients including hepatologists, gastroenterologists, transplant surgeons, specialist nurses, and nutritionists.
