Five hundred ninety-three cadaveric livers were used for primary liver transplantation between October 24, 1987, and May 19, 1989. The grafts were procured with a combined method, using in situ cooling with cold electrolyte solution and backtable flushing with UW solution. The mean cold-ischemia time was 12.8 (range 2.4-34.7) hr. The cases were divided into 5 groups according to the cold-ischemia time: group 1: less than 10 hr (n = 223); group 2: 10-14 hr (n = 188); group 3: 15-19 hr (n = 101… CONTINUE READING
