This practical text focuses on the diagnosis and management of the subsequent neurologic problems encountered by organ transplant recipients. Due to advances in immunosuppressive drugs, transplant patients are surviving longer, resulting in the occurrence of a number of neurologic problems. Neurologists may feel overwhelmed when called upon to evaluate a postoperative neurologic complication, due in part to the vastness of medical and surgical history. In addition, the neurologic exam is confounded by varying drugs and the large number of catheters that limit access to the patient. This book aims to make neurologists feel more confident in the treatment of transplant patients by systematically reviewing the major neurologic and psychiatric complications that can occur. With the number of transplant surgeries increasing each year, Neurologic Complications in Organ Transplant Recipients is an essential text for all neurologists who are involved or going to be involved in the care of transplant recipients.
