Abstract

Kidney transplants are routinely performed at medical centers around the world. Concurrent with improved surgical techniques, a better understanding of the pharmacology involved in the perioperative anesthetic management has led to improved outcomes in these patients. This chapter reviews the perioperative pharmacologic considerations surrounding kidney transplant patients from the viewpoint of the transplant anesthesiologist.

Keywords: Anesthesia, anesthetics, kidney transplantation, narcotics, pharmacology, renal disease.
