About this book

Introduction

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.
