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.

Encouragement should be given to the type of interinstitutional collaborations that are necessary for the continued progression of extrarenal organ transplantation.
