About This Topic

Our transplant community recognizes the growing role of the transplant anesthesiologist in patient care and outcomes of liver transplant surgeries. Physician anesthesiologist participates in transplant patients selection process, preoperative optimization, intraoperative, and immediate postoperative care. The importance of experienced, specially trained anesthesia providers is paramount. In the modern era, when we are asked to provide care for a sicker and older patient population, the role of the transplant anesthesiologist as a member of multidisciplinary team will only grow.
Transplant anesthesiologists are on the forefront of bringing new technology and the latest scientific developments into the operating room. We are committed to improving patient care by using transesophageal echocardiography during transplant procedures. We are applying new knowledge in the area of coagulation management, which helps us conserve blood and blood products, and eventually improve patients outcome. We are actively developing fast track programs for our liver transplant recipients; these programs give us new prospective on patient management. We are a part of all innovations and new developments in the ever-growing field of transplantations.
With this introduction, I would like to welcome publications in the area of original research, systemic analysis, quality improvement projects, review articles, and case reports related to transplant anesthesiology.
