The current topic will review the latest literature on when to transplant patients with a prior treated malignancy as previous knowledge did not take into account new practices in staging, disease biology, or in cancer treatments. At the end of the session, participants will know how to evaluate a patient with a history of previous malignancy for transplant candidacy.
