Chapter 5 discusses how NHBDs are exposed to organ preservation solutions at three points between organ retrieval and graft implantation: during donor perfusion, transport/storage, and implantation itself (second warm time). To date, successful transplants have been performed, using conventional preservation solutions, with kidney (1), liver (2), pancreas (3), and lung grafts (4) from NHBDs, and experimental work on using NHBD hearts is under way (5).
