Chapter topics include immunobiology and immunosuppression, as well as chapters on surgery, histocompatibility, and the first three months post-transplant surgery. This thoroughly updated Fifth Edition includes new information on options for patients with end-stage renal disease, immunosuppressive medications and protocols for kidney transplantation, and the first two months following transplant.

From options for treatment of end-stage renal disease to transplantation and post-operative management, this very complete and efficient overview offers new learners adequate information as well as a handy reference to renal transplant clinicians. This book was an invaluable study reference for my professional certification. The information reflects current UNOS policy regarding HLA tissue matching and cadaveric kidney distribution for transplantation. A must!

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome! November 16, 2006
I am a nephrologist-in-training in Los Angeles. During our renal transplant months, this is the only book I carry around.

It has everything a nephrology fellow needs to know about transplant: including transplant selection, periop and postop complications, types and treatment of rejection, all the information you need regarding immunosuppressive medications, and concise what-to-do-on-call information for fellows taking care of post-op renal transplant patients. I found that I never needed to look in another book during my transplant month.

What an awesome book!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great transplant review book July 23, 2012
By ARo
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book has (just about) everything a renal fellow needs to know when starting fellowship. I read it before starting fellowship, was on transplant the first month, and my attending said, "You seem to know everything already!" Of course, you'll need to read primary papers if you want more in-depth or up-to-date information about a specific topic, but as a background primer this book is terrific.
