Fig. 3

Argon-Celsior preserved transplant appearance. Per-operative pictures of the transplants 30 min after reperfusion (1) and at autopsy (2) are shown. A right kidney is shown and represents the authentic situation (control kidney; a, e). After reperfusion (1), macroscopic examination revealed major changes that included an impaired recolouration of the transplant in the Air-Celsior group (b) and further alterations in the Xenon-Celsior group (c) in addition to large necrotic areas (asterisks). The transplants stored in Argon-Celsior (d) exhibited appearances that were similar to those of the control kidneys. At autopsy (2), the Air-Celsior (f) and Xenon-Celsior (g) transplants exhibited significant cortical injuries compared with the Argon-Celsior transplants (h)
