Valuable to the seasoned and novice transplant surgeon as well as the multidisciplinary team that tends to both the living donor and the recipient of abdominal organs, Living Organ Donor Transplantation puts the entire discipline in perspective while guiding you step-by-step through the most common organ transplant surgeries.
