Challenges & Controversies in Kidney Transplantation

by Sandip Kapur

The textbook, Challenges and Controversies in Kidney Transplantation, provide a thorough and clear overview of topics along two main themes: increasing the organ donor pool for patients with end stage renal disease who are in need of a renal transplant; and strategies to manage the challenging transplant candidate and recipient populations. Successful kidney transplant programs must work diligently to maximize opportunities for transplantation for their patients, including utilization of marginal donor organs, pediatric organs, and hepatitis C positive organs. By considering the use of such organs in carefully selected recipients, the organs that are available can be utilized to the greatest extent possible, with acceptable outcomes. Transplant professionals will find this textbook a useful learning tool, due to the insights offered on progress and novel advances to increase their patients’ chances of receiving a kidney transplant, and on ways to successfully transplant and manage challenging patient populations.
