Ex vivo dissection, reconstruction, and autotransplantation have been performed in a total of five patients. Two had intrarenal aneurysms, and in three, this treatment was deemed best suitable.

There are techniques now available to provide a means of ex vivo preservation of organs adequate to sustain renal viability during bench surgery.
