Perioperative Care of the Patient with a Solid Organ Transplant
Patients with solid organ transplants are living longer and frequently undergo surgery that is unrelated to their transplant . Often these patients are many years out from transplantation, and are primarily being managed by primary care providers. In most cases these patients still require specialty care, but internists are expected to have a working knowledge of care of such patients.
