Abdominal SOT has become the treatment of choice for various end-stage chronic diseases of the liver, kidney, and foregut. Improved knowledge of immunology, the introduction of new immunosuppressive agents, and advances in surgical techniques have all increased the number of potential candidates and led to better outcomes. It is therefore unsurprising that more and more surgeons, physicians, and scientists, as well as students and nurses, are becoming interested in abdominal SOT. This book will provide all practitioners with an excellent, up-to-date summary of knowledge in the field.

"This is a succinct, yet comprehensive, technical overview of liver, kidney, and intestinal transplant that covers the preoperative evaluation, operative technique, perioperative management, postoperative complications, and pertinent infection/immunology, including helpful clinical correlation. ... The intended audience includes surgeons, physicians, scientists, students, and nurses. It is most relevant for surgeons involved in multiorgan transplant, but it also would be an excellent resource for physician assistants or nurse practitioners working on a transplant service." (Krishna G. Putchakayala, Doody's Book Reviews, November, 2015)
