Ischemic Preconditioning of Rat Livers from Non-Heart-Beating Donors Decreases Parenchymal Cell Killing and Increases Graft Survival after Transplantation

Figure 4

Light microscopy of livers after aortic clamping and cold storage/reperfusion. Aortas were clamped for 0 to 90 min. After clamping, livers were stored for 2 h in cold UW solution, followed by 15 min of warm reperfusion with KHB containing trypan blue to label nonviable cells, as described in section 2. Blue nuclei in eosin-counterstained sections represent nonviable parenchymal and nonparenchymal cells, as illustrated by arrows and double arrows respectively.
