About the Authors
  • Over the past forty years transplantation has developed from a laboratory based experimental procedure to a clinical commonplace. Transplantation raises issues of patient screening and selection, quality of life for recipients, living donors and their families, cognitive changes associated with transplantation, ethical considerations, and the impact of immunological and pharmacological changes associated with the procedure. This complex of issues affects clinicians from a wide range of disciplines and is the focus of consultation-liaison psychiatry and this book. Pittsburgh, where many of the contributors are based, was and is still a pioneering center for organ transplantation. Dr. Thomas Starzl, who gives an overview of the field, is one of the founding fathers of transplantation surgery.

    • Essential interdisciplinary approach to the complex of issues arising from transplantation
    • Overview of the field provided by Thomas E. Starzl, one of the founding fathers of transplantation surgery
    • Many of the contributors drawn from Pittsburgh, a leading centre in transplantation medicine

    Reviews & endorsements

    "Overall, this book is a convenient, comprehensive, accessible presentation of many societal and psychological issues affecting the practice of organ transplantation...As a transplantation specialist with a keen interest in psychodynamics, I am sure that this book will hold an important place on my reference shelf." New England Journal of Medicine

    "The value of this book is not only in its scholarly and practical contribution to understanding the transplant but also because it offers a window into a new world..." Mac MacLachlan, Journal of Health Psychology

    "This volume is an excellent contribution to the existing literature." Doody's Review Service ®

    "It should be very useful for the doctors who select patients for organ transplantation or who are involved in the follow-up of these patients. It should be of great interest for psychiatrists and also for psychologists, both of whom, increasingly, are part of organ-transplantation teams." The Lancet

    "The editors should be commended for attempting such an ambitious review of transplantation." Practical Gastroenterology
