© 2017 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved. Kidney preservation aims to reduce the effects of ischemic injury that the kidney inevitably sustains after blood flow to the organ has stopped. This chapter reviews the detrimental changes that occur during organ preservation. It details the use of cooling and preservation solutions for kidney graft preservation. It also gives an overview of the recent evidence comparing static cold storage and machine perfusion preservation of the kidney. Finally, future directions of hypothermic kidney preservation are discussed.
