Abstract

In an approach to combined donor hepatectomy and nephrectomy, which is adaptable to any cadaveric kidney procurement method now in use, the importance of precooling with portal venous infusion is stressed. The over-all effectiveness of the technique in providing equal protection for the quality of all three organs is supported by the data presented. Encouragement should be given to the type of interinstitutional collaborations that are necessary for the continued progression of extrarenal organ transplantation.
