hypothermic machine perfusion

Ahmer M Hameed, Henry C Pleass, Germaine Wong, Wayne J Hawthorne
BACKGROUND: The two main options for renal allograft preservation are static cold storage (CS) and machine perfusion (MP). There has been considerably increased interest in MP preservation of kidneys, however conflicting evidence regarding its efficacy and associated costs have impacted its scale of clinical uptake. Additionally, there is no clear consensus regarding oxygenation, and hypo- or normothermia, in conjunction with MP, and its mechanisms of action are also debated. The primary aims of this article were to elucidate the benefits of MP preservation with and without oxygenation, and/or under normothermic conditions, when compared with CS prior to deceased donor kidney transplantation...

BACKGROUND: The shortage of organ donors is a universal problem. Use of grafts from donors after cardiac death would greatly contribute to the expansion of the donor organ pool. The two major methods of preservation are cold storage and machine perfusion (MP) preservation, and each has its own advantages. Several studies have reported the relative merits of MP for the preservation for grafts from donors after cardiac death. In this study, we used scanning electron microscopy (SEM) to assess the damage to the liver between hypothermic and rewarming preservation conditions...

BACKGROUND: Post-transplant function of suboptimal kidney grafts can be improved but not accurately predicted by hypothermic machine perfusion. Therefore, a new concept of ex situ pre-implantation machine perfusion with controlled rewarming up to subnormothermic temperatures was developed and evaluated. METHODS: Porcine kidneys (n= 6/ group) were retrieved before or 30 min after cardiac arrest of the donor and subjected to 18 hours of static cold storage. In some cases 90 min of machine controlled oxygenated rewarming (COR) was added thereafter...

Warm ischemia (WI) produces a significant deleterious effect in potential kidney grafts. Hypothermic machine perfusion (HMP) seems to improve immediate graft function after transplant. Our aim was to analyze the effect of short pretransplant periods of pulsatile HMP on histology and renal injury in warm-ischemic kidneys. Twelve minipigs were used. WI was achieved in the right kidney by applying a vascular clamp for 45 min. After nephrectomy, autotransplant was performed following one of two strategies: cold storage of the kidneys or cold storage combined with perfusion in pulsatile HMP...

Delayed graft function (DGF) remains a major barrier to improved outcomes after kidney transplantation. High-risk transplant recipients can be identified, but no definitive prediction model exists. Novel biomarkers to predict DGF in the first hours post-transplant, such as neutrophil gelatinase-associated lipocalin (NGAL), are under investigation. Donor management to minimize the profound physiological consequences of brain death is highly complex. A hormonal resuscitation package to manage the catecholamine "storm" that follows brain death is recommended...

BACKGROUND: The aim of this study is to determine the feasibility of using nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) tracer studies ((13)C-enriched glucose) to detect ex vivo de novo metabolism in the perfusion fluid and cortical tissue of porcine kidneys during hypothermic machine perfusion (HMP). METHODS: Porcine kidneys (n = 6) were subjected to 24 h of HMP using the Organ Recovery Systems LifePort Kidney perfusion device. Glucose, uniformly enriched with the stable isotope (13)C ([U-(13)C] glucose), was incorporated into KPS-1-like perfusion fluid at a concentration of 10 mM...

BACKGROUND: Hypothermic machine organ perfusion (HMP) offers opportunity to manipulate grafts with pharmacological agents prior to transplantation. Pretreating organs with novel cytotopic anti-coagulant peptides that localise to endothelial cell membranes could ameliorate microvascular thrombotic sequelae posttransplantation. We describe experiments testing Thrombalexin (TLN), a novel cell binding thrombin-inhibitor, using porcine and unused human kidneys in a series of ex-vivo normothermic haemo-reperfusion models...

Kidney grafts are often preserved initially in static cold storage (CS) and subsequently on hypothermic machine perfusion (MP). However, the impact of CS/MP time on transplant outcome remains unclear. We evaluated the effect of prolonged CS/MP time in a single-center retrospective cohort of 59 donation after circulatory death (DCD) and 177 matched donation after brain death (DBD) kidney-alone transplant recipients. With mean overall CS/MP times of 6.0 h/30.0 h, overall incidence of delayed graft function (DGF) was higher in DCD transplants (30...

Different nonhypothermic preservation modalities have shown beneficial effects in liver transplantation models. This study compares controlled oxygenated rewarming (COR) to normothermic machine perfusion (NMP) to resuscitate liver grafts following cold storage (CS). Porcine livers were preserved for 18 hours by CS. Before reperfusion, the grafts were put on a machine perfusion device (Liver Assist) for 3 hours and were randomly assigned to COR (n = 6) or NMP (n = 5) and compared to standard CS. COR was carried out with the new Custodiol-N solution, slowly increasing temperature from 8 °C to 20 °C during the first 90 minutes...

BACKGROUND: The use of grafts from donors after cardiac death (DCD) would greatly contribute to the expansion of the donor organ pool. However, the implementation of such a strategy requires the development of novel preservation methods to recover from changes owing to warm ischemia. The aim of this study was to evaluate the effectiveness of subnormothermic machine perfusion (MP) preservation with rewarming for porcine DCD liver grafts for transplantation. METHODS: Porcine livers were perfused with newly developed MP system...

BACKGROUND: The use of grafts from donors after cardiac death (DCD) would greatly contribute to the expansion of the donor organ pool. The objective of this study is to determine the benefits of extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) and subnormothermic machine perfusion (MP) with rewarming in a large animal model of DCD liver. METHODS: After cardiac arrest, the abdominal aorta and the inferior vena cava were cannulated and connected to an ECMO circuit. Porcine livers were perfused in situ with ECMO at 22°C for 60 minutes after 60 minutes of cardiac death...

There is an urgent need to improve the quality of donor organs obtained after cardiac death. In the present study, we examined the potential mechanisms through which A20 protects renal cells against ischemia/reperfusion injury (IRI) following either hypothermic machine perfusion (HMP) or static cold storage (CS) of the kidneys in a rabbit model. The expression of markers of apoptosis, necroptosis and inflammation in frozen kidney tissues were detected by western blot analysis, RT-qPCR and ELISA. Compared with the CS group, A20 expression was significantly higher in the tissue from the HMP group (P<0...

BACKGROUND: Ischemia-reperfusion injury of donor kidneys may worsen transplant outcome. Kidneys with severe injury, such as kidneys of donors after circulatory death, develop edema, which may lead to renal compartment syndrome with reduced tissue perfusion. OBJECTIVE: We studied the effect of capsulotomy during hypothermic machine perfusion (HMP) of ischemically damaged porcine kidneys. METHODS: Eight pairs of kidneys from slaughterhouse pigs were assigned to two groups (20 and 45 min of warm ischemia)...

BACKGROUND: Machine perfusion is a promising strategy for donor heart preservation, but delivery of perfusate through the aorta may be limited by aortic valve incompetence. We hypothesized that retrograde machine perfusion preservation through the coronary sinus avoided this issue and allowed for recovery of donor hearts after long-term storage. METHODS: Canine hearts were procured after arrest with 1 liter University of Wisconsin Machine Perfusion Solution (UWMPS) and preserved for 14 hours by static hypothermic storage (Static group, n = 5) or retrograde machine perfusion through the coronary sinus (RP group, n = 5)...

Diabetes is a major health problem worldwide and there is substantial interest in developing xenogeneic islet transplantation as a potential treatment. The potential to relieve the demand on an inadequate supply of human pancreata is dependent upon the efficiency of techniques for isolating and culturing islets from the source pancreata. Porcine islets are favored for xenotransplantation, but mature pigs (>2 years) present logistic and economic challenges and young pigs (3-6 months) have not yet proven to be an adequate source...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: Owing to a severe shortage of organs for patients with end-stage diseases, novel techniques in organ preservation and perfusion need to be studied and reviewed to increase the number of available organs for transplant. Many patients will die while waiting for an organ. To make organs from extended-criteria donors feasible, optimal conditions for pulsatile perfusion and the potential for organ reconditioning at implantation need to be addressed. RECENT FINDINGS: Many techniques in organ preservation and perfusion are being studied...

Hypothermic machine perfusion (HMP) has been known as an efficient way to improve kidney graft function, but the underlying mechanisms remain unclear. Here, we adopt a rabbit reperfusion mode to investigate the upstream mechanisms of end-ischemic HMP of kidneys from donors after cardiac death (DCD), with static cold storage (CS) as a control. Eighteen New Zealand healthy male rabbits (12 weeks old, with a weight of 3.0 ± 0.2 kg) were randomly divided into three groups: HMP group, CS group, and Normal group (n = 6)...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: Cold static storage is a time-tested and simple method of preserving hearts retrieved from optimal donors after brain death (DBD). The increasing gap between supply and demand for donor organs together with changing donor and recipient characteristics have led to renewed interest in the use of machine perfusion to increase both the quality and quantity of donor hearts for transplantation. RECENT FINDINGS: Two major approaches to machine perfusion of donor hearts have been investigated - hypothermic (HMP) and normothermic machine perfusion (NMP)...
