Hypothermic reconditioning by gaseous oxygen improves survival after transplantation of marginally preserved livers in the pig

Martina Koetting, Mathias Koetting, Gernot Kaiser, Andreas Paul & Thomas Minor
Introduction: The quality of cold-stored livers slowly declines beyond approximately 8 hours of ischemia and the risk of primary dys- or non-function increases. Here provide in vivo evidence for the efficacy of the previously proposed end-ischemic gaseous oxygen persufflation to resuscitate large size[for full text, please go to the a.m. URL]
