BACKGROUND A short period of isolated normothermic perfusion (NP) can be used to improve the condition of the kidney after periods of warm and cold ischemic injury. However, the mechanisms underlying this beneficial effect have not been determined. MATERIALS AND METHODS Porcine kidneys were retrieved after 10 min of warm ischemic injury and stored by either static cold storage (CS) for 24 h (control) or CS for 23 h followed by 1 h of NP at 38°C with leukocyte-depleted autologous blood (NP… CONTINUE READING
