I’d like to begin by thanking the authors and experts, who have agreed to participate in this important discussion about Therapeutic Hypothermia in Deceased Organ Donors. Over the following 10 days, my co-moderators and I shall be posting questions each morning, to guide the discussion further . Our discussion will be focused around the article titled, “Therapeutic Hypothermia in Deceased Organ Donors on Delayed Graft Function”, which is published in the New England Journal of Medicine.
I look forward to valuable contribution from everyone.
To initiate this discussion, I have basic questions to put this research in context :
What is Delayed Graft Function ? How does it is effect the long term outcomes after kidney transplantation?
