Clinical Management of Renal Transplantation presents The Belfast City and University Hospital experience in renal transplantation. Over the years, the Belfast Renal Transplant Unit has acquired considerable experience in all aspects of renal transplantation which have led to excellent results. The team working in the Belfast Renal Transplant Unit has built up an outstanding reputation which has become widely known.
This volume is a comprehensive, practical reference work for senior medical students and nurses as well as for the established nephrologist and transplantation surgeon. It provides a clear and concise picture of the care needed by patients who are being prepared for renal transplantation or who have recently received a kidney transplant.

`The chapters are well-written, well-indexed, and provide a broad and comprehensive account of renal transplantation on a worldwide basis, in addition to local protocols. ... Overall, this is an excellent book on renal transplantation. The superb results that the Belfast unit has achieved over the years should make it a compelling book to be read by all medical personnel who are interested in transplantaion as a method of renal replacement therapy.' Dialysis & Transplantation, May 1994 `This is a comprehensive and easily readable book .... The figures and the illustrations nicely complement the text. Overall, this book is nicely presented and should be recommended as an introduction guide for junior doctors, internists or nephrologists not familiar with renal transplation.' Acta Clinica Belgica, 49, 2 (1994)
