More Than A Footnote: The Story of Organ Transplantation in Australia and New Zealand

Edited by Brian Tait

More Than a Footnote recounts the history and development of organ transplantation in Australia and New Zealand. Comprising first hand accounts from surgeons, physicians, scientists and transplant coordinators – all key participants in this story – the book details a half-century of clinical transplantation.

From the laboratory aspects of transplantation and the role of Australian and New Zealand scientists, to the history of the Transplant Games, More Than a Footnote is not only a clinical history, but also a forum for the real heroes of the story – the patients, and the donors who provided them with the ultimate gift, the Gift of Life.
