Hewitt / Lee Transplantation of Composite Tissue Allografts

This brilliant synthesis summarizes all of the recent accomplishments – as well as the ongoing research – in the field of composite tissue transplantation. It includes sections on hand transplantation and vascularized bone marrow transplantation. The volume focuses on immunology and the biotechnology/bioengineering aspects of transplantation surgery, as those two areas have demonstrated the most growth within the last five years in terms of current research.
