With a long practice of organ transplantation, retransplantation has become a major goal in patients with long-term failure of their first transplant (chronic rejection, exhaustion of the transplant, recurrence of the initial disease, etc. ). In addition, retransplantation can be necessary in the initial period, due to severe acute rejection, a non-functioning organ, or surgical complication. Immunological and non-immunological factors affecting the success of a second transplant are described in this volume, together with alternatives to retransplantation. It is hoped that in the future retransplants will be less frequent, as a result of improved prevention of transplant failure. J. L. Torrroine et a/.
