Organ and Tissue Donation for Transplantation is a unique book bringing together detailed analyses of the problems surrounding organ and tissue donation. The increasing number of organs that can be transplanted and the rising number of patients on waiting lists have reached the point where availability or organ donors has surpassed the immunological problems as the major challenge for transplantation. In direct response to these problems, this book addresses all aspects of organ and tissue donation and the methods used to increase donation. Organ and Tissue Donation forTransplantation examines the many different approaches, both at legislative and individual levels, to improve donor rates. The inclusion of a technical section considers the practical aspects of donation and testing to prevent the transmission of disease for living organ donation, cadaver organ donation and tissue and bone marrow donation. Legal and social aspects are considered extensively, as are the various strategies used around the world to increase organ donation, from the United States and Australia, to Spain and the rest of Europe. This book will prove to be an invaluable guide for all transplant units and intensive care units where knowledge of organ and tissue is required.
