Optimal outcomes for kidney transplants require excellent preservation of the kidney between the time of procurement and implantation. These authors performed a meta-analysis of studies comparing different preservation solutions in use today. While the number of available studies was small, Eurocollins solution was associated with a higher risk of delayed graft failure than UW, HTK, Celsior solutions. This may affect fling-term graft outcomes.
