SAENZ MEDINA, J. et al. Experimental models for research and training in renal transplant. Actas Urol Esp [online]. 2008, vol.32, n.1, pp.83-90. ISSN 0210-4806.

Introduction and objetives: An update on aspects and use of different experimental models applied in kidney transplant research is presented . This paper includes qualities, as long as similarities between most frequently used animal models and human clinical standards. Contributions of those models based on microsurgical or laparoscopic techniques are revised. The physiological consequences (hemodynamic, immunologic) of surgical technique (laparoscopy), applied in experimental models as long as non-heart beating organ donor models and organ preservation methods are also reviewed. Finally, an update of those models applied in research in prothocols of either immunosupression or xenotransplant is done.

Keywords : Experimental models; Renal transplantation.
