'Revolutionary' organ transplant method trials go well in Groningen
from NL Times
A "revolutionary" new transplant method now used by the University Medical Center in Groningen means that 10 to 20 percent more people can get a donor organ, RTL Nieuws reports. A special department in the hospital can not only better preserve organs intended for transplant, but also "repair" them. In this department organs are treated with oxygen-rich liquid and nutrients, as if they were still in a living body, transplant surgeon Robert Porte said to the newspaper. This means that there will be more organs of a better quality available.
