applied postconditioning after cold ischemia
of the donor liver using several intermittent interruptions of blood flow at the early phase of reperfusion and compared grafts treated with IPostC with controls, after six hours of sustained reperfusion of the liver graft .
Three successful digital replantations in a patient after 84, 86, and 94 hours of cold ischemia
The warm and cold ischemia
time were short in the present study as a single surgeon performed donor nephrectomy and graft anastomoses.
The researchers stressed that the study's results do not have implications for patients treated with cold ischemia
Ioannou found that the donor age, cold ischemia
time, recipient MELD score, and cause of liver disease have the greatest impact on survival.
A multivariate analysis combining both groups of patients showed that significant risk factors for death were preoperative hospitalization, longer cold ischemia
times of the donor liver, a liver disease etiology of hepatitis C virus infection, and alcohol consumption.
15) Muscle can withstand 6 hours of warm ischemia time and 12 hours of cold ischemia
Other factors that have been important to the success of the protocol include use of an improved islet isolation procedure using a special chamber, the practice of transplanting freshly prepared islets immediately after harvesting them from cadavers to prevent islet injury due to cold ischemia
, use of a xenoprotein-free medium, and transplantation of a larger number of islets than have been used in the past.
These data are used to determine the capacity of the organ to withstand the surgical insult during procurement, extended cold ischemia
, and reperfusion injury.
The researchers stress that the study's results do not have implications for patients treated with cold ischemia
Moreover, PEG 35 has been shown to protect renal cells against cold ischemia
To adequately assess the quality of DBD hearts, surgeons must consider all factors, including donor age, cause and time of brain death, hemodynamics of the donor, the usage of positive inotropic drugs, heart function, cold ischemia
time, as well as characteristics of the recipient.
The available literature indicates that postmortem interval (PMI), cold ischemia
(defined as the time between biospecimen removal from the body and its preservation), specimen size, and decalcification method can each affect subsequent DNA analysis of FFPE specimens.
nephrometry score and perioperative outcomes following open partial nephrectomy under cold ischemia
Donor source, cold ischemia
time, immunosuppressive drugs regimen, time to diuresis, and cause of ESRD did not influence the survival rate.
