This book deals with organ failure and the way it can be managed artificially without requiring a transplant. It covers the support of multiorgan failure, the blood substitutes, the management of short bowel syndrome, artificial sphincters, substitution of the liver in case of liver failure, pancreatic substitution in case of diabetes, the dialysis machine in kidney failure, circulatory support in heart failure, the bionic ear in deafness, skin substitutes in cases of burns, stem cells in organ replacement and artificial bladder following injury to bladder/sphincters. Written by a mixture of European and US physicians and surgeons, each of the chapters compares the artificial organ to what is currently available from the transplant point of view to highlight the current and modern available techniques for organ replacement. The book will be a useful reading for postgraduate students and people interested in modern surgical and medical technology.
