RODRIGUEZ-MARTINEZ, D. et al. Technical aspects of isolated organ perfusion devices. Actas Urol Esp [online]. 2008, vol.32, n.1, pp.59-66. ISSN 0210-4806.

An aspect of capital importance in the transplant field is the maintainance and preservation of organs during the ischemic phase. Organ susceptibility and injuries secondary to ischemia, organ procurement and transportation are still nowadays one of the main causes for organ failure. Effective artificial organ perfusion has remained a main goal for researchers in this field for more than 100 years. In the second half of the XXth century these techniques have been applied to experimental and clinical organ preservation, with the aim of extending the period of an effective storage (which guarantees an early and good function after the transplant). Primary goal of any organ preservation is to maintain integrity in every cell system in order to minimize those injuries which produces graft dysfunction.

Keywords : Renal perfusion; Organ preservation.
