Abstract

SUMMARY

The ability of hypertonic citrate solution to preserve ischaemically injured canine kidneys was investigated. It was found that if mannitol was given i.v. before ischaemia and again after graft revascularization, kidneys subjected to 30 min of warm ischaemia could be preserved for 24 hr, maintaining immediate life-sustaining function.
