The present work gives current data on all aspects of the medical problem, from aetiology and pathology to financial aspects, medico-legal implications, and current nursing practices. It reviews the knowledge and techniques currently available to the clinician and focuses on evidence-based knowledge for prevention, treatment and assessment of pressure ulcers. Specific patient groups include the Spinal Cord Injured. Current and future techniques are described that will provide information on the susceptibility of subjects to pressure ulcer development and the possibilities of tissue repair using tissue engineering strategies.

Skin disease is a serious long-term problem for the recipients of solid organ transplants. The potent systemic immunosuppression therapy necessary to sustain a life-saving solid organ transplant is associated with many adverse cutaneous effects, including significantly increased rates of cutaneous malignancies, difficult-to-treat cutaneous infections, and cutaneous adverse manifestations of multiple medications. This book is the first scholarly compilation of the knowledge base surrounding the care of solid organ transplant recipients with dermatologic diseases. Supplemented with dozens of full-color photographs, this work brings together decades of knowledge into a cohesive format and establishes transplant dermatology as an important subspecialty within the field of dermatology and transplant medicine. Skin Disease in Organ Transplantation is an outstanding resource for transplant providers and dermatologists to determine the optimal diagnostic and therapeutic approach to the difficult problems of cutaneous disease in organ transplant recipients.
