Defying the gods : inside the new frontiers of organ transplants by Scott McCartney( Book )

6 editions published in 1994 in English and Undetermined and held by 363 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Defying the Gods, Scott McCartney takes the reader inside the world of organ transplants, focusing on four patients at the Baylor University Medical Center in Dallas. Baylor is home to one of the top three leading transplant teams in the country - a pair of "Top Gun" cutters who have stretched the boundaries of science to save lives. Defying the Gods shows not only what goes on inside the operating room, but also details the circumstances that brought the patients and the organs to the operating table - because for every triumphant successful transplant, there is the death of the person who donated the organ. McCartney follows the four patients on this difficult journey, from the weeks or even months of anguished waiting on the list of potential recipients, to the stressful recovery period when both doctors and patients watch tensely to see if the organ will be rejected by the patient's body - which in some cases means death. McCartney also profiles the transplant surgeons, who consider themselves on the cutting edge of medicine as they constantly push back the borders of death, and explains and critiques the transplant system: Who decides who gets one of the small number of available organs, and how is that decision made? Are doctors' and hospitals' hands tied by the laws regulating the collection and allocation of organs, or do they manipulate those laws? How important is it for patients to pass what doctors call the "wallet biopsy"? What can we do to assure an adequate supply of organs in the future? Defying the Gods is the definitive account of the history, science, and ethics that make transplants possible, covering the terrible choices transplantation presents for families, the moral dilemmas facing doctors, and the ongoing debate over how best to allocate the limited organs to those who need them. It is both suspenseful and moving, addressing important medical issues on a most human level
