A comprehensive, but detailed, text on transplantation of the heart, the lung (single and double), and the heart and both lungs and on replacement with artificial hearts. Indications, ethical and legal matters, donor selection, recipient selection, perioperative management, post-transplantation complications and care, and results are discussed. The chapters on the history of transplantation efforts and successes run back as far as Carrel and Guthrie.
