About the Book
This Medical Complications of Kidney Transplantation is edited by Claudio Ponticelli. With color illustrations throughout, this First Edition textbook analyzes the implications that transplantation and immunosuppression can hold for patients. Discussing the many complications that may occur after kidney transplantation, this source is a must for anyone caring for patients recovering from this type of procedure.
– The first two chapters give comprehensive detail on the changing of current concepts for selecting and preparing donors and recipients. The third chapter summarises succinctly the aetiology, consequences, prevention and treatment of delayed graft function.
– In Chapters 4 and 5 the author describes acute rejection and chronic allograft nephropathy in a simple elegant style, with illustrative diagrams and colour histological photographs that further clarify the complex concepts on these issues. Chapter 6 discusses in great detail the toxicity of the currently available immunosuppressive drugs.
– The seventh chapter focuses on the recurrence of the original renal and systemic diseases, and Chapter 8 describes different types of de novo glomerular diseases that might develop in transplanted kidneys, triggered by autoimmune processes, diabetes and drug toxicity or infection.
– Chapter 9 highlights the infectious disease issues in kidney-transplant recipients, the prophylaxis of infection after the transplant, and the treatment of common and emerging infections. However, this chapter overlooked a summary on the clinical risk factors for infection before and after transplantation, the emphasis on screening the recipient and donor before transplantation to prevent infection after ward, and the interaction between frequently used anti-infective agents and immunosuppressive drugs.
– Chapter 10 deals with the cardiovascular complications after renal transplantation. The author has provided clear evidence that reducing cardiovascular morbidity can improve not only life-expectancy and the quality of life of the transplant recipient, but also their allograft function and survival.
– Chapter 11 describes various malignancies (pre-existing and de novo cancers) after renal transplantation.
– The final six chapters are unique in this book; they nicely describe in-depth various disorders such as gastrointestinal, pancreatic and hepatobiliary, cutaneous, musculoskeletal, haematological and thrombotic complications, which not only might adversely affect the quality of life of the renal transplant patient, but also might be life-threatening if not managed appropriately.
– Taken together, this new book is well written and a very worthy addition to the transplant encyclopaedia, not only of specialists in the field, but also individuals or institutions with a more general interest in kidney transplantation. It helps the reader to understand in depth the challenges in renal transplantation.
