Abstract:

Contemporary Pancreas Transplantation provides a comprehensive review of the most crucial and provocative aspects of pancreas transplantation. It represents a unique source of information and guidance for the current generation of transplant surgeons that evolved from being pure clinicians into savvy administrators knowledgeable in every regulatory aspect governing transplantation. The book contains 15 chapters covering every single aspect of the surgical operation in the donors as well as the recipients of pancreas transplants. The pre-operative workup, as well as the post-operative immunosuppression management, and the treatment of recurrent diseases are addressed in detail. In addition, the book further expands the role of islet cell transplant with its ever increasing prominence, which includes the role of autologous islet cell transplant. The impact of increasing regulatory burdens from the federal government coupled with the economic and health burden of Diabetes mellitus is discussed. Contemporary Pancreas Transplantation provide a state-of-the art review of pancreas transplantation and will prove to be a valuable reference for medical students, residents, researchers, surgeons and clinicians.
