Ann Surg. 1982 Jul;196(1):38-42. doi: 10.1097/00000658-198207000-00009.

Abstract

Canine livers were preserved by simple hypothermic storage using modified Sacks' solution and prostacyclin. Orthotopic liver transplantation was then carried out. Five of six and three of five livers preserved for 24 and 48 hours, respectively, were able to sustain life for more than five days.
