Infections represent a significant risk in the postoperative transplant recipient. The perfusion fluid used to perfuse and preserve the kidneys prior to transplantation represents a potential medium in which organisms can grow. The aim of this study was to determine the incidence and clinical relevance of bacterial contamination of perfusion fluid. A total of 4 centres participated in the study and 269 perfusion fluid samples were taken for microbiological analysis. Organisms were isolated from… CONTINUE READING
