CHICAGO, Dec. 31 /PRNewswire/ -- A landmark study published today in the New England Journal of Medicine (NEJM) demonstrates that use of a specially-designed machine to store kidneys for transplantation offers significant benefits in kidney survival and function when compared to those stored in a traditional "ice box", or cold storage. Unlike the icebox, the LifePort(R) Kidney Transporter monitors the temperature and vascular performance of the organ in real time, while preserving it by...
