Paper Abstract

Long-term conservation of organs by use of hemoglobin-free perfusion of tissue can be applied during heart surgery as well as transplantation of kidney, liver and pancreas. Furthermore, a conservation of organs during times of 24 hours can be very useful for transport of organs in order to prevent reperfusion injury. Decisive prerequisites for the application of such new tools is the applicability of modern optical tissue sensors for precise monitoring of local tissue function.
