BACKGROUND: A pilot study of warm versus cold perfusion and preservation was completed in 32 patients prior to the ongoing study.

The changes in neurologic function had abated or clearly improved by one month of follow-up, and the distinction in neurologic dysfunction grading was no longer apparent between the two gr...
