Go Inside the Operating Room With the Ochsner Journal

The Spring 2017 issue of the Ochsner Journal takes readers inside the operating room with its Focus on Transplantation section. Along with 11 articles on various topics related to organ transplantation, the issue also includes a stunning array of photos from actual kidney, lung, and heart transplant operations.

The featured contributor for the spring issue is Dr. Michael Bates who contributed 3 articles to this special issue:  “Pacemaker Use Following Heart Transplantation,” “Lung Transplantation and the Routine Use of Cardiopulmonary Bypass and Median Sternotomy: Experience at the Ochsner Multi-Organ Transplant Institute,”and “Pulmonary Thromboendarterectomy for Pulmonary Hypertension Before Considering Transplant.”

In addition to the transplantation focus section, the spring issue also includes a nice collection of original research and cases. We invite your comments on the issue.
