In renal transplantation, live donor kidney grafts are associated with optimum success rates due to the shorter period of ischemia during the surgical procedure. The current shortage of donor organs for adult patients has caused a shift towards deceased donors, often with co-morbidity factors, whose organs are more sensitive to ischemia–reperfusion injury, which is unavoidable during transplantation. Donor management is pivotal to kidney graft survival through the control of the ischemia… CONTINUE READING
