520    This book is a comprehensive and innovative guide to 
       abdominal solid organ transplantation (SOT). It explains 
       the main immunological problems involved in abdominal SOT,
       reviews indications for liver, kidney, and small bowel 
       transplantation, and provides detailed descriptions of 
       techniques for procurement and transplantation. In 
       addition, technical, infectious, and immunological 
       complications and their treatment are fully described. 
       Special attention is devoted to the indications for and 
       outcomes of combined kidney-liver and kidney-pancreas 
       transplantation. Clear advice is provided on donor 
       selection and donor safety, and the book concludes by 
       examining medical disease and the risk of solid and 
       hematologic malignancies after transplantation. 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. ℗ℓ.
