INTRODUCTION Our lab has developed a novel strategy for intestinal preservation involving the intraluminal delivery of a nutrient-rich preservation solution. The aim of this study was to compare the effectiveness of two impermeant agents for use in our solution: Dextran 70 (D70; Mw=70 kDa) and Hydroxyethyl starch (HES; Mw=2200 kDa). METHODS Rat intestines… CONTINUE READING
