Abstract

  • © 2013 Springer Science+Business Media New York. All rights reserved. Clinical observations during the 1980s suggested that brain death has a much greater impact on organ function in the potential organ donor- and after the organs are transplanted into the recipients-than previously anticipated. Extensive laboratory and clinical studies were initiated with regard to many aspects of the impact of brain death, including organ injury, depletion of energy stores, cytokine and inflammatory responses, and immunological sequelae.
