About this book


With the increased prevalence of kidney transplantation, transplant recipients are being treated in a variety of clinical settings – often beyond the transplant center.  There is a greater need for clinicians and allied healthcare professionals to have appropriate guidance on managing these patients.  Kidney Transplantation offers the latest evidence-based information on the full range of dilemmas in the medical management of kidney transplant recipients before, during and after transplantation.  Beginning with the selection of patients who are candidates for transplantation, this authoritative guide covers the care of the patient on the waiting list and evaluation of donors, preoperative care, induction and immunosuppression maintenance.  This wealth of new information and guidelines will serve as an important resource for the best possible care for transplant patients.
