Figure 3: Daily serum creatinine values after kidney autotransplantation after DCD donation. Kidneys were perfused for 24 hours using the LifePort (Open Squares) or the RM3 (Solid Circles). Values are mean S.D. and represent 8 dogs per group (Figure 3(a)). Similar data (Figure 3(b)) are shown for a LifePort operated under either constant pressure (nonpulsatile flow) or pulsatile flow conditions (both at 30 mm Hg). The values are statistically different between the first 3 corresponding post-operative days. The survival in the pulsatile and nonpulsatile groups were 100% (8/8) and 50% (2/4), respectively ( ).
