The Future of Organ Donation: Ex Vivo Preservation

Eliza Beal, Sylvester Black and Bryan Whitson

Abstract

Extending the donor organ pool has been a long-standing goal of the transplant community given the inadequate supply of donor organs in comparison to the number of patients on the transplant waiting list. ex vivo preservation techniques are now evolving as a viable means to accomplish these goals. In this chapter, we review and explore the currently available techniques and potential for ex vivo preservation of solid organs.
