In the night season : a novel by Christiaan Barnard( Book )

5 editions published between 1977 and 1982 in English and held by 449 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Famous Dr. Barnard's latest operation is to transplant himself from surgeon to storyteller--and the prognosis is not nearly as ghastly as one might have feared. During the first half of this well-intentioned book, as ethical hero Dr. Charles de la Porte faces a malpractice suit and rampant ostracism because he decided not to tell patient Janice Case (a fellow M.D.) that she has inoperable cancer, events move along professionally enough in the South African urban setting--albeit with rather too much ponderous pondering ("Why did the background to his own agony have to be the sounds of riots in which children were made the victims of two sets of intransigence?"). Unfortunately, when a flashback takes over to reveal Charles' secret past involvement with Janice, so do the cliches: Janice, young rebel reed-student type, lured stodgy but infatuated Charles into helping her hide a black fugitive from the pigs--and Charles' jealous wife died in a car crash, maybe suicidally. Back in the present, Barnard stitches in his second Big Moral-Medicine Question--euthanasia--as dying Janice silently begs Charles to pull her plug (he does so, then changes his mind, too late). The familiar issues here--South-African political as well as medical--are handled with careful balance, but Dr. Barnard has nothing remarkable to add; perhaps he should have applied his modicum of narrative ability to the moral ramifications of heart transplants, about which less has been written and about which he probably knows something we don't."--Kirkus

Heart transplantation : the present status of orthotopic and heterotopic heart transplantation by D. K. C Cooper( Book )

2 editions published in 1984 in English and held by 100 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It is a great pleasure for me to contribute a brief introduction to this volume, to which so many of my colleagues at Groote Schuur Hospital and the University of Cape Town Medical School have contributed. Though considerable advances have been made in preventing or treating the complications of heart transplantation, even today a transplant pro gramme remains a major undertaking for a hospital team. The acquisition of a sufficient number of donor hearts, the maintenance of viability of those hearts, and the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of acute and chronic rejection and infection remain major challenges to those caring for patients undergoing this operation. A transplant programme draws into it medical, surgical, nursing and paramedical staff from all quarters of the hospital and medical school, and requires sustained interest and dedication if patients are to be brought successfully through the procedure. If relevant experimental research is also to be carried out at such a centre, which in my opinion is essential, then an even greater number of highly skilled and creative people is required. A few of the authors of this book have been involved with the Groote Schuur heart transplant programme since its inception in December 1967 with the operation on Louis Washkansky. I am sure that none of them (nor I) had any idea of the public interest this operation would attract
