<p> This is an excellent and thorough resource on kidney and pancreas transplantation. It will be useful for young training surgeons as well as physician extenders, OR staff, transplant coordinators, and all members of the transplant team looking for a quick yet complete source of information to clarify any questions they may have. ( Doody's , 15 March 2013)<p> These are minor points and the Editors should be congratulated for producing an excellent and accessible handbook that can be strongly recommended to all members of transplant teams, irrespective of whether they are based in Europe or elsewhere. ( American Journal of Transplantation . 1 January 2013)<p>
