Description :  The ethics, policies and clinical aspects of organ donation and transplantation have been discussed in this extensive book. Transplantation has been successful in prolonging the lives of those unfortunate enough to have not received fully functioning body organs from nature. However, there is limitation to this life-saving advancement. There is a lack of organ donors for fulfilling the needs of patients. This not only puts immense physical and emotional burden on the waiting patients and families but also puts huge financial burden on health services. An evaluation and overview of public policy advancements as well as clinical advancements has been provided in this book. Hopefully, it will facilitate an escalated knowledge of organ donation and greater graft survival. Experts and veterans from across the world have contributed in this all-inclusive book.
