(30) reported an increase in the urine NGAL levels at the 1st hour following the cold ischemia in nephron sparing open partial nephrectomies of a small number of patients.
(20) To address this knowledge gap, we systematically queried the effects of preanalytic variables on the PTEN IHC assay, examining time of cold ischemia before fixation, time lapsed in formalin fixation, and the effect of different fixatives and different processing protocols, as well as tissue block and slide age.
No significant difference was found for the comparisons of gender, age, race, cold ischemia time, human leukocyte antigen (HLA) matching (loci A, B, and DR), incidence of DGF, serum creatinine up to 180 days after transplantation, percentage of deceased donor recipients, and immunosuppressive regimen.
The cold ischemia time was recorded as the duration from perfusion to blood reperfusion during transplantation surgery.
Current clinical data support a "safe" warm ischemia time of 25 minutes, or a cold ischemia time (when the kidney is placed on ice slush) of 35 min while up to two hours can be tolerated [4].
Generally, cold ischemia (4-7[degrees]C) can be protective due to reduced metabolic processes and cellular ATP demand at lower temperature, whereas warm ischemia (37[degrees]C) is usually harmful to cells and molecular pathways [13].
Rabbit antithymocyte globulin (rATG) is generally used preferentially in patients at high immunological risk, such as sensitized individuals, and in patients with other risk factors for DGF including older donor age and longer cold ischemia time [16, 17].
Risk factors associated with the development of graft thrombosis have been identified, such as the use of peritoneal dialysis, retransplantation, prolonged cold ischemia (greater than 24 hours), and transsurgical hypotension [2-4].
Besides, the levels of autophagy induced by cold ischemia preservation for lung transplantation was initiated at 3 h, peaked at 6 h, and declined thereafter [30].
Cold ischemia time was 17 hours and warm ischemia time was 20 minutes.
WI time of 20-25 minutes is generally considered safe, while cold ischemia (by intraoperative renal cooling) can be applied if more ischemia time is demanded [6].
