Current status of renal transplantation

  • James Cerilli
Part of the Developments in Surgery book series (DISU, volume 5)


This paper is designed to present an overview of the current status of clinical renal transplantation. Not all aspects of transplantation will be covered because of the complexity of the issue, but it is hoped that the salient points of the discipline, emphasizing the newer aspects of renal transplantation, will be in enough detail to provide a useful synopis of the topic.
