Bone disease, particularly osteoporosis, has emerged as a common and serious complication of solid organ transplantation. In recent years there have been real advances in our understanding of the pathogenesis and pathophysiology of bone loss, however treatment studies have been relatively sparse and successful strategies to reduce skeletal morbidity after transplantation remain to be clearly established. This book provides a unique resource for the many health professionals involved with transplantation of bone disease, both in terms of its scientific background and the management of the disease in clinical practice.
Clinicians who work with organ transplantation, as well as researchers in the fields of bone biology and tissue engineering.
