Book description

This book provides a detailed account of the principles and practice of contemporary lung transplantation. An accomplished, international team of contributing authors have combined their expertise to provide scientific developments and clinical knowledge based on their extensive experience. The book covers pulmonary vascular and parenchymal lung disease, which necessitate transplantation, together with all aspects of the multidisciplinary management of lung transplant patients. It concludes by looking at future developments in the treatment of advanced respiratory failure. This multidisciplinary approach makes the publication suitable for several subspecialities in addition to pulmonary medicine and lung transplantation, including haematology, radiology and clinical psychology. It will serve as a valuable source of reference and practical information for medical specialists in transplantation and all those working in thoracic organ transplant units.


‘The authors gently guide you into the topic with a potted historical overview and then reacquaint you with basic immunology in a way that you wish you had been taught as an undergraduate … In all the book was a pleasure to review. It answered many a burning question.’

‘… an excellent resource book that has the potential to become the go to reference text for lung transplantation. It is a ‘must have' for all transplant pulmonologists, coordinators and surgeons and a ‘nice to have’ for all other pulmonologists, transplant psychiatrists and social workers.’
