Improved kidney graft function after preservation using a novel hypothermic machine perfusion device.

Abstract:

OBJECTIVE: To study graft function and ischemia/reperfusion injury of porcine kidneys after preservation with the new Groningen Machine Perfusion (GMP) system versus static cold storage (CS). INTRODUCTION: The increasing proportion of marginal and nonheart beating donors necessitates better preservation methods to maintain adequate graft viability. Hypothermic machine preservation (HMP) is a promising alternative to static CS. We have therefore developed and tested an HMP device, which is po...
