  • Updates on organ transplantation including increasing the donor pool and non-heart beating donors
  • Updated references throughout
  • A summary of key points at the end of each chapter

A companion Website includes instant fully searchable text. This useful resource is a must-read for medical students and practicing professionals at every level of experience.

Well written, small print, but chapters are short! Each concept is broken down and examples provide real world application of the concepts.
