BACKGROUND Ischemia-reperfusion injury (IRI) is often responsible for graft rejection and leads to delayed graft function of cadaveric kidneys. We have shown that adding polyethylene glycol (PEG 20M) to the preservation solutions helps protect isolated perfused pig kidneys against cold ischemia and reperfusion injury. METHODS We compared the effects of(More)
Venous thrombosis (VT) is a common disease with multifactorial pathogenesis. Factor V Leiden mutation (G1691A) (FVL) is the most common risk factor in venous thrombosis. The prevalence of FVL varies according to geography and ethnicity. Hence, in several countries there is a difference in the frequency of this mutation between the southern, central and(More)
The present study aimed to characterize and evaluate the in vitro and in vivo anticoagulant activity of sulfated glycosaminoglycans from the skins of smooth hound (SHSG) and grey triggerfish (GTSG). The analysis of SHSG and GTSG with acetate cellulose electrophoresis in Zn-acetate revealed the presence of hyaluronic acid (HA), chondroitin sulfate (CS) and(More)
Delayed graft function remains an important complication after renal transplantation. In this study, we investigated the influence of trimetazidine (TMZ), a cytoprotective agent, on renal medullary damage after prolonged preservation and autotransplantation. Pig kidneys were cold-flushed and preserved (48 h at 4 degrees C) with two standard renal(More)
