There are many interesting aspects regarding hemorheology and tissue oxygenation in organ transplantation (such as liver, kidney, heart, etc.). The ischemia-reperfusion injury syndrome is a very important problem. Much damage in organs appears to be induced by reperfusion injury syndrome. In fact, not only immunological etiopathogenesis but also biochemically-mediated microcirculation alterations can modulate the organ damage induced by ischemia-reperfusion injury during organ transplantation… CONTINUE READING
