The book is also supplemented with instructive color illustrations and tables. Written by experts in the field, Surgical Procedures on the Cirrhotic Patient is a valuable, multidisciplinary resource for clinicians who treat the cirrhotic patient. With a Foreword by Thomas E. Starzl, the father of liver transplantation.
