Abstract

This is a 5-year report on the recruitment of urologists and general surgeons into a cadaver kidney retrieval program. The proportion of retrievals by community surgeons significantly increased from 43% in 1979 to 94% in 1983. Seventy-nine percent of the 320 retrieved kidneys were transplanted. The en bloc technique was encouraged; all kidneys were preserved by ice-cold intracellular electrolyte flushing followed by simple cold storage for 11-50 hours. There was no significant difference between the university and community retrieval teams with respect to the proportion of kidneys discarded because of technical problems during retrieval. When first cadaver kidney graft function of kidneys by the university team were compared with those retrieved by the community teams, there were no significant differences with respect to the incidence of acute tubular necrosis, 1-month serum creatinine nadir of surviving grafts or graft function for 1 month. Community hospital retrieval teams can provide kidneys as satisfactory for transplantation as a center-based transplant team.
