Featuring more than 400 full-color digital intraoperative photographs, this atlas is a comprehensive “how-to” guide to heart, lung, liver, kidney, and pancreas transplantation.
The atlas presents photographs and succinct descriptions of every step of each operation—including patient positioning, dissection and exposure, retraction, anatomic details, anatomoses, completion, and drain placement. Photographs have been taken from multiple angles, including directly overhead wherever possible. Anatomic and technical variations are illustrated by drawings.
Coverage includes procurement and transplantation of cadaver organs, operations to obtain organs from living donors, and transplantation of living donor organs. The liver and kidney sections include pediatric transplantation.
