Summary This book provides a comprehensive survey of transplantation including pre-transplant considerations, the transplant procedure, acute and delayed transplant related problems, and an outlook on future developments. The authors have addressed the principles involved in marrow transplantation. Thus, this text should help practicing hematologists, oncologists and other physicians - as well as physicians in training and students - to develop an idea as to when bone marrow transplantation should be considered, what steps need to be taken to make it possible, what the costs are, how a donor can be selected, and so forth. It also reviews potential complications and side effects, aspects particularly useful for the physician who assumes the care of patients after their return from a transplant center. Knowledge of the various areas under discussion should allow smoother communication between primary care physicians and transplant physicians, thus optimizing the treatment approach for any individual patient.
