As Dr. Orandi suggested in response to the question of "The next big questions in research," the future of transplant seems to be a very exciting field rife with opportunity for innovation. It's also great to be talking about the importance of preventative health as a means of prolonging graft survival. That ties in very well with Dr. Moskowitz' question of decreasing the need for live donors by attacking the issues of HTN and DM. In light of the obvious links between these chronic diseases and the need for organ transplantation, are there collaborative models of health care wherein transplant surgeons work closely with cardiologists, endocrinologists, rheumatologist, etc to prevent the loss of kidney function pre-transplant and/or prolong graft survival post-transplant? If so, what are the most successful ways of sharing patient care? If not, why hasn't more team care emerged?
