Objective The results of segmental venous resection (VR) combined with pancreatoduodenectomy (PD) are controversial but may be promising. Few studies have described reconstruction of the portal/superior mesenteric vein (PV/SMV) with the iliac vein harvested from donation after cardiac death (DCD). Methods From January 2014 to April 2016, PD combined with segmental excision of the PV/SMV (VR group) was performed in 21 patients with adenocarcinoma of the head of the pancreas (ADHP). The authors established a new technique of venous reconstruction using the iliac vein from DCD and analysed patients' long-term survival...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: As the number of people living with heart failure continues to grow, future treatments will focus on efficient donor organ donation and ensuring safe and durable outcomes. This review will focus on organ procurement, graft surveillance and emerging therapies. RECENT FINDINGS: Preliminary studies into donation after cardiac death have indicated that this may be an effective means to increase the donor pool. Novel preservation techniques that include ex-vivo perfusion to improve donor metabolic stabilization prior to implantation may also expand the donor pool...

The sequelae of cardiac arrest (CA) and cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) in organ donors potentially results in ischemic organ injury and graft dysfunction after transplantation. Thresholds of resuscitation times in brain dead liver donors have not been established so far. We report the case of a brain dead liver donor who experienced 2.5 hours of CPR whose liver was successfully transplanted. A 75-year-old male experienced CA and was treated by CPR with streptokinase application for 2.5 hours until stabilization of cardiac function...

The shortage of organs for transplant is a universal problem. The World Health Organization is urging every nation to seek self-sufficiency regarding their organ procurement program. Reaching self-sufficiency inevitably requires the provision of a well-developed deceased-donor organ procurement program. Most countries represented by the Middle East Society for Organ Transplantation still rely on living-donor organ donations. Some of these countries have been relatively successful in promoting deceased-donor donation as well...

OBJECTIVES: Our goal was to investigate wait times related to hepatitis C virus treatment with direct acting antivirals before versus after liver transplant at a single center as well as wait times for insurance approval for preemptive treatment with these agents after liver transplant. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We retrospectively evaluated hepatitis C virus infections in transplant recipients of deceased liver donations in 2014 and 2015. Demographics, hepatocellular carcinoma incidence, Model for End-Stage Liver Disease scores, and transplant wait times were compared between patients treated before or after liver transplant...

BACKGROUND Because of the shortage of grafts, many attempts have been made to treat calculi in donor kidneys and have achieved successful management. This case report is the first to present removal of stones from bilateral kidneys from a single donor through flexible ureteroscopy before transplantation. CASE REPORT The present case report shows the clinical management of bilateral donor kidneys with calculi, which were taken from a 33-year-old man through donation after cardiac death (DCD). Computed tomography showed 2 stones in the right donor kidney and 1 in the left donor kidney...

BACKGROUND: Death after withdrawal of mechanical ventilation frequently follows the sequence of progressive hypoxemia and hypotension leading to cardiac arrest. Accurate timing of the determination of death is fundamental to trust in controlled donation after circulatory death (cDCD) programs and is generally based on cessation of circulation (pulselessness), brain function (apnea), and the passage of time. If death is understood to be the unresuscitatable loss of brain function, the clinical determination that death following apnea and pulselessness has occurred is largely inferential...

BACKGROUND: Although multidrug-resistant (MDR) gram-negative bacteremia (GNB) has been recognized as an important cause of morbidity and mortality among abdominal solid organ transplant (ASOT) recipients, there are no data on its prognostic factors after an interim standard definition of MDR was proposed in 2012. The objective of this study was to describe the epidemiology, microbiology, and predictors of infection-related 30-day mortality in ASOT recipients with MDR GNB. METHODS: We performed a retrospective, double-center analysis of ASOT patients with MDR GNB over a 13-year study period...

BACKGROUND: Donation after cardiac death (DCD) to overcome the donor organ shortage is well accepted in the clinical setting, although long-term outcome after DCD lung transplantation (LTx) remains largely unknown. METHODS: In this retrospective study, DCD LTx recipients (n=59) were compared with a cohort of donation after brain-death (DBD) LTx recipients (n=331) transplanted between February 2007 and September 2013; follow-up was until January 1st 2016. Short-term (duration of mechanical ventilation, ICU stay, hospital stay and highest PGD score within 72 hours) and long-term (CLAD-free and overall survival) follow-up were compared over a median follow-up of 50...

To assess the application of a hypothermic machine perfusion device (LifePort) in kidney transplantation from donation after cardiac death (DCD) donors, 24 pairs of DCD kidneys were randomly divided into two groups: one of the paired kidneys from the same donor was perfused with the LifePort machine (hypothermic machine perfusion [HMP]), and the contralateral kidney was prepared using common static cold preservation (CCP). The two groups were compared with respect to the incidence of delayed graft function (DGF), level of graft function, and pathological changes in time-zero biopsy specimens...

Lung transplantation has been performed worldwide and recognized as an effective treatment for patients with various end-stage lung diseases. Shortage of lung donors is one of the main obstacles. Lung transplantation in the use of donation after cardiac death has now been increasingly performed in Europe and USA with promising results. However, controlled death is not permitted in Japan making it difficult to accept this strategy. Use of marginal donors is one of the strategies. In Japan, the rate of lung usage is now well over 60% owing to careful donor management by medical consultants and aggressive use of marginal donors...

In this study, we determined the risk factors for acute kidney injury (AKI) following orthotopic liver transplantation (OLT) in China. We collected 5074 donation after cardiac death (DCD) OLT recipients who underwent surgery between January 1, 2010, and December 31, 2015, in 86 academic hospitals or transplant centers in China. Univariate and multivariate analyses were used to investigate the criticality of donor, graft, or recipient variables in the development of post-OLT AKI. In all, 4482 patients were included (median age, 49...

BACKGROUND: In light of the growing gap between candidates for organ donation and the actual number of organs available, we present a unique case of organ donation after cardiac death. We hope to open a discussion regarding organ procurement from eligible donors in the prehospital and emergency department setting. CASE: This case study, involving an otherwise healthy man who, after suffering an untimely death, was able to successfully donate his organs, highlights the need to develop an infrastructure to make this type of donation a viable and streamlined option for the future...

BACKGROUND: The Kidney Donor Risk Index (KDRI) scoring system for deceased donors has been widely introduced for postoperative evaluation of graft function. We analyzed the usefulness of the KDRI in deceased donors with acute kidney injury (AKI). METHODS: Forty-nine recipients from deceased donors with AKI between January 2009 and December 2014 were reviewed retrospectively. Data collected from donor medical records included age, height, weight, hypertension or diabetes history, cause of death, serum creatinine (sCr), and donation after cardiac death...

Julie Allard, Marie-Chantal Fortin
In June 2016, following the decision of the Supreme Court of Canada to decriminalise assistance in dying, the Canadian government enacted Bill C-14, legalising medical assistance in dying (MAID). In 2014, the province of Quebec had passed end-of-life care legislation making MAID available as of December 2015. The availability of MAID has many implications, including the possibility of combining this practice with organ donation through the controlled donation after cardiac death (cDCD) protocol. cDCD most often occurs in cases where the patient has a severe neurological injury but does not meet all the criteria for brain death...

The use of liver grafts from donation after cardiac death (DCD) has been limited due to the increased rate of graft failure, mostly related to ischemic cholangiopathy (IC). It is our hypothesis that longterm outcomes and quality of life (QOL) similar to patients undergoing liver transplantation (LT) with donation after brain death (DBD) can be achieved. Clinical outcomes of all patients undergoing DCD LT (n = 300) between 1998 and 2015 were compared with a propensity score-matched cohort of patients undergoing DBD LT (n = 300)...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: Donation after cardiac death is associated with many problems including ischemic injury, high rates of delayed allograft function, prolonged time to asystole, and frequent organ discard. Imminent death donation (IDD) has been proposed as a separate category of organ donation: distinct from living donation and donation after cardiac death. RECENT FINDINGS: A protocol for IDD was developed at Rhode Island Hospital and published in the ethics literature...

REVIEW
Karim Serri, Pierre Marsolais
Despite important advances in the care of postcardiac arrest patients, severe brain injury remains one of the major causes of death in the cardiac intensive care unit. Neurological prognostication after cardiac arrest has evolved significantly since the introduction of therapeutic hypothermia. It now relies on a multimodal approach and a minimal observation period of 72 hours is usually advocated. However, when brain injury is severe and the prognosis considered dismal, patients become eligible for organ donation...
