Textbook Without good organ harvesting, there is a high mortality incidence in the patients on the waiting list and less spaces for the dialysis for new patients with kidney insufficiency. This book encompasses Dr Baranski’s 20 year experience in the field of abdominal organ donation. It is a step-by-step guide with photographs and drawings with clear explanations highlighting pitfalls. The book quickly and easily guides the reader through the difficult steps during organ procurement. It is mainly illustration-based, with not a lot of text, and covers surgical technical mistakes and organ damage.
Organ procurement is an essential and important part of organ transplantation. In most donors, the surgical procedure can be challenging for an inexperienced surgeon where more than one organ is removed. This part of transplant surgery is critically important. Inadequate preservation or surgical injury at this stage can lead to complete organ damage (not transplantable) or to serious complications in the recipient.
This is a handy pocket book guide accompanied with a CD Rom for surgeons or senior surgical residents and fellows participating in organ procurement teams wishing to learn abdominal organ procurement or refresh their memory by referring to a particular step-by-step procedure. It will also benefit experienced surgeons in the field of organ transplantation with no organ procurement experience.
