Here is a brief excerpt from the Preface:

"Infections in solid organ transplant recipients in general and in cardiothoracic organ transplantation (CTTX) recipients in particular are a moving target. Advances in immunosuppression and mechanical circulatory support (MCS) have not only resulted in prolonging life but have also caused new infectious syndromes. This monograph was created to provide a practical and concise clinical resource for understanding and controlling infectious diseases in cardiothoracic transplant and mechanical circulatory support recipients. It is intended to serve as a resource for medical professionals involved in CTTX and MCS."
