A method and apparatus is described, pertaining to the preservation of living tissue such as an organ excised from the body for an extended time in view of future transplant thereof. The organ is placed in a refrigerated environment and under pressure while a nutrient fluid is circulated through its arterial complex. The gas utilized for pressurizing the environment of the organ is biochemically inert and serves as a carrier of oxygen which is absorbed by the nutrient, the latter being subjected to the influence of the pressurizing gas.
