About the book

Liver Transplant is the gold standard and only the cure for end-stage liver diseases. However, throughout history, liver transplant has been surrounded by lots of controversies. Despite the better outcomes, liver transplant still seems to face lots of challenges and controversies primarily concerned with the marginal supply of organ donors, liver transplantation criteria for different conditions, and new surgical innovations. Thus, these challenges and controversies need to be discussed among the transplant community.

This book aims to present an important disparity and controversies that are specific to outcomes of liver transplantation. Overall, this book will serve as an invaluable "tool" for liver transplant surgeons and hepatologists in the decision-making process before liver transplantation.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Ms. Ana Javor

As an Author Service Manager, my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors, and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
