The current report compares the renal physiological impact of a standard vitrification solution, VS41A, as measured by normothermic blood perfusion, to the physiological effects of VS4, a related but more dilute vitrification solution previously shown to be consistently compatible with life support function of transplanted rabbit kidneys. VS41A, which allows survival of only about half of the kidneys perfused with it, also appeared to be more damaging than VS4 based on in vitro functional indices and histology in one rabbit kidney so evaluated.
