Summary
  • "Updated content will continue to be published as 'Living Reference Works'"--Publisher
  • Despite recent advances in mechanical circulatory support, heart transplantation has remained the gold standard for the treatment of patients with advanced heart failure. Since the first heart transplant in 1967, the field has advanced significantly with better outcomes due to improved techniques, advanced immunosuppressive medications, and the development of the multi-disciplinary approach to the management of these unique patients. Contemporary Heart Transplantation provides a one-of- a-kind volume that includes all aspects of heart transplantation from its historic beginning to its current day standards which now make the procedure a long-term treatment option for heart failure patients. The subjects covered include technical aspects of the procurement and implant procedures, as well as the medical nuances of pre-operative preparation and post-transplant immunosuppression management; the current day multi-disciplinary make up of the transplant team along with information on the keys to building and running a successful transplant program; regulatory standards and listing policies and the impact of the growing mechanical circulatory support technologies on the transplant field; and emerging technologies and future possibilities. All chapters are written by experts in the field and include the most up-to-date peer reviewed studies and clinical guidelines. This book provides an ever-changing reference that will become the text of choice for those beginning or continuing their transplant careers
