Abstract

The story of transplantation is difficult to tell. Not only must one recount the work of many people striving toward the same goal, but one must also consider the multitude of other disciplines that transplantation embraces. These disciplines include antiseptic technique, renal dialysis, vascular surgery, organ preservation, immunology, cardiopulmonary bypass, intensive patient care, and the development of antibiotic therapy. Without the concomitant advancements made in these other areas, the field of transplantation would not be where it is today. Unfortunately, it is beyond the scope of this overview to detail these topics beyond their influence on the individuals responsible for the milestones in transplantation.
