Abstract

Abdominal solid organ transplantation (SOT) has become treatment of choice for several end-stage chronic disease of liver, kidney and foregut. Improving knowledge in immunology, introduction of new immunosuppressive agents as well as the improvement in surgical techniques have increased the number of potential candidates and outcome. The aim of this book is to focus on main immunological problems of SOT. We will review the indication for liver, kidney and small bowel transplantation, will describe techniques for procurement and transplantation, will emphasize technical, infective and immunological complications and treatments. Special issues will present to elucidate indication and outcome of combined heart-liver, liver-kidney and kidney-pancreas transplantation. With an increasing demand of abdominal SOT, more and more doctors (surgeons, physicians) and scientists, as well as student and nurses are becoming interested in; for them, the book is of value summarizing the knowledge in this field.
