Comparison of reperfusion injury i n kidneys transplanted from LD, HBD or NHBD donors is presented in the paper. Central venous blood saamples (taken during perioperative period) was assessed for free radicals, total antioxidant activity and various markers of tissue injury. There was demonstrable ischemia reperfusion injury occurring at the time of revascularization, which was particularly notable in kidneys transplanted from NHBD donors.
