Anesthesia in Renal Transplantation

  • Ivor T. Davie


In the last decade, there has been great progress in hemodialysis techniques and renal transplantation has been widely accepted, and whereas in the past, this operation was performed only in specialized units, the number of centers at which this procedure is carried out is now increasing.
