Abstract

BACKGROUND Preservation injury is a main factor leading to graft failure in liver transplantation. The aim of the study was to minimize preservation injury by modifications of the histidine-tryptophan-ketoglutarate (HTK) solution (incorporation of N-acetyl-histidine, aspartate, glycine, alanine, and arginine).
