  • Each volume highlights evidence-based practice both in the text and within the extensive list of references at the end of every chapter.
  • Your eBook is much more than just 'pictures of pages': you can customize your page views; search in single books that you have purchased or across any volumes in the series in your collection; and highlight and take searchable notes, and even print and copy-and-paste with bibliographic support. All the extensive reference lists are linked where available to Medline citations (including authors, title, source, and often an abstract).

Transplantation meets the needs of surgeons in higher training and practising consultants for a contemporary and evidence-based account of this sub-specialty that is relevant to their general surgical practice. It is a practical reference source incorporating the most current information on recent developments, management issues and operative procedures. The text is thoroughly referenced and supported by evidence-based recommendations wherever possible, distinguishing between strong evidence to support a conclusion, and evidence suggesting that a recommendation can be reached on the balance of probabilities.

This is a title in the Companion to Specialist Surgical Practice series whose eight volumes are an established and highly regarded source of information for the specialist general surgeon.
