9780521188944: Acute Liver Failure

Acute liver failure (ALF), or fulminant hepatic failure, is a distinct clinical syndrome that crosses medical disciplines. A relatively rare condition, ALF remains a major focus of clinical and research attention. With the advent of transplantation, the importance of understanding management of ALF has taken on a new urgency. In this first volume dedicated to ALF, the editors bring together a distinguished team of contributors to describe the etiology, pathology and treatment of this important syndrome. Also covered are consensus techniques in liver transplantation for ALF patients, as well as descriptions of artificial and bioartificial liver assist devices. A section on future treatments includes hepatocyte transplantation, auxiliary grafts and other temporary liver support. Notable for the high level of the authors' expertise, this comprehensive volume should prove invaluable.

Review:

"The book is written by several prominent clinicians and experienced researchers who have given thoughtful and excellent overviews of different aspects of acute liver failure. The chapters are detailed, covering not only the basic concepts of the pathophysiology and general management of this syndrome but also future directions of research...It is current, comprehensive, well written, and well organised, all of which make it very easy to read. Most of all, this ambitious endeavor serves all the audiences that it targets." Hari Conjeevaram, The Lancet

"This slim book is the first to be dedicated to acute liver failure...the chapters read easily as individual essays... This book is a landmark in the field and worthy of monagraph status." Elizabeth Ann Fagan, Doody's Heath Sciences Book Review Journal

"To summarise, this is an excellent up-to-date refernce book for the complex and perplexing syndrome of acute liver failure. The book has many strengths. It is current, comprehensive, well-written, and well organised, all of which make it very easy to read. Most of all, this ambitious endeavour serves all the audiences that it targets." Hari Conjeevaram, The Lancet

"We congratulate the international team of authors who wrote this timely book on acute hepatic failure. As a result of its comprehensive coverage, this volume will prove invaluable to internists, hepatologists, gastroenterologists, surgeons, and other clinicians involved in the diagnosis and treatment of acute liver failure. The medical litertaure had a place for such a comprehensive reference for a number of years, and, finally, that place is filled." Lehel Somogyi and David Nelson, Modern Pathology
