Hypothermic oxygenated machine perfusion in porcine donation after circulatory determination of death liver transplant.
BACKGROUND: Livers from donation after circulatory determination-of-death (DCD) donors suffer ischemic injury during a preextraction period of cardiac arrest and are infrequently used for transplantation; they have the potential, however, to considerably expand the donor pool. We aimed to determine whether hypothermic oxygenated machine perfusion would improve or further deteriorate the quality of these livers using a clinically relevant porcine model. METHODS: Donor livers were subjected to...Expand abstract
