It has become essential that all transplant surgeons and physicians, as well as any health professional in the critical care environment understand the basic principles of the multi-organ donor. The Multi-Organ Donor offers state-of-the-art guidelines for the selection and management of donors, the surgical techniques necessary to perform the procurement procedure safely and expediently, and specific problems associated with each of the individual organs commonly transplanted. The doctrine put forth in this book will go a long way in providing the most organs from a limited supply of donors and will prove to be essential to the future of organ transplantation.
