“Overall, this is a nice summary of abdominal transplantation, its advances, and where the field still needs to improve. In an ever-evolving field, this book is comparable to other reviews of abdominal transplantation, but is unique in its summary of up-to-date immunosuppression techniques.”  (Doody’s, 17 May 2013)
