This volume offers authoritative, evidence-based guidelines on the full range of dilemmas in the medical management of kidney transplant recipients before, during, and after transplantation.

Coverage begins with selection of patients who are candidates for transplantation, care of the patient on the waiting list, and evaluation of donors. Subsequent chapters address preoperative care and induction and maintenance of immunosuppression. An extensive section on post-transplantation care includes chapters on rejection, recurrent disease, and disorders that frequently result from transplantation, such as bone disease, diabetes, and hypertension. Also included are discussions on long-term outcomes of renal transplantation and psychosocial and ethical issues.
