A rapid technique for multiple organ harvesting is described which allows removal of all the major organs within 30 to 60 minutes after beginning the donor operation. No preliminary dissection of the liver or kidneys is required or necessary since these organs are cooled by infusion of cold solutions in situ and with subsequent rapid dissection in a bloodless field. The incidence of well functioning kidneys, livers and hearts has been better than with the previous methods. The acceptance of this procedure by other personnel has been almost universal.
