Preservation of porcine non-heart-beating donor livers by sequential cold storage and warm perfusion.

Abstract:

BACKGROUND: Normothermic perfusion has been shown to resuscitate and maintain viability of non-heart-beating donor (NHBD) livers that have undergone significant warm ischemic injury. However, the logistics of clinical organ retrieval are complex, and a period of cold storage before warm preservation would simplify the process. We have investigated the effects of short duration of cold preservation before normothermic preservation on the function of porcine NHBD livers. METHODS: Porcine liver...
