PEREZ SANZ, P. et al. Celsior´s kidney preservation in renal transplantation: Our experience. Actas Urol Esp [online]. 2004, vol.28, n.1, pp.49-53. ISSN 0210-4806.

BACKGROUND: The goal of this research is to make a comparative analysis of acute tubular necrosis (NTA) incidence in function of preservation solution used: Wisconsin vs Celsior. METHODS: From january 1994 to december 2002, 229 kidney transplantation procedures were executed; 190 of them were perfused with Winsconsin (82.9%) and 39 with Celsior (17.1%). After checking the statistical homogeneity of both groups, we analysis comparativily the incidence of NTA and the evolution of serum creatinine in function of preservation solution utilized. RESULTS: There was not statistical significant difference in NTA incidence between Celsior (23%) and Wisconsin group (36%). We assesed that each group were comparable with regard to NTA incidence of subgroups with cold ischemia times longer 12 hours. Creatinine serum in Celsior group tended to be lower than Wisconsin group at 1, 3, 6 and 12 months postransplantation (statistically significant difference, p<0.05) CONCLUSIONS: Kidney preservation in Celsior solution provides similar results to the ones obtained in Wisconsin solution in relation with NTA incidence and kidney function with the added advantage of a lower cost.
