Angiographic and gravametric studies of dog kidneys perfused with electrolyte, Dextran, or albumin solution are presented to demonstrate the possibility of extending organ preservation for transplantation without loss of function. Findings include a reduction in flow and weight gain with the nonprotein solutions and maintenance of flow with albumin solution. Gross changes of the perfused kidneys are also described.
