The completion of this book is very exciting as we consider all the innovations around cardiovascular healthcare world wide. We are truly in an era of change not only in terms of technology but in the type of patient we are caring for. With change come challenges around truly multidisciplinary management of transplant patients. That is why I feel this book is exciting in that it presents the team approach to the transplant patient. I am confident that the pioneers of cardiac transplantation would be pleased with our response to challenges in healthcare today and be pleased with the final product. I would like to thank Dr. Bruce Reitz, my neverending supporter and mentor who started me on this journey.
