PURPOSE: Ex vivo perfusion of marginal kidney grafts offers the chance to expand the donor pool, but there is no current clinical standard for the prolonged warm perfusion of renal grafts. This exploratory pilot study seeks to identify a stable ex vivo kidney perfusion model that can support low intravascular resistance and preserve histologic architecture in a porcine donation after cardiac death (DCD) model. METHODS: 15 kidneys were preserved in 1 of 3 settings: normothermic whole blood (NT-WB), normothermic Steen Solution™ (XVIVO Perfusion) with whole blood (NT-Steen/WB), or subnormothermic Steen Solution™ at 21°C (SNT-Steen)...

There is great demand for transplant kidneys for the treatment of end-stage kidney disease patients. To expand the donor pool, organs from older and comorbid brain death donors, so-called expanded criteria donors (ECD), as well as donation after circulatory death donors, are considered for transplantation. However, the quality of these organs may be inferior to standard donor organs. A major issue affecting graft function and survival is ischemia/reperfusion injury, which particularly affects kidneys from deceased donors...

BACKGROUND: Lung transplantation (LTx) is limited by the shortage of suitable donors. To overcome this problem, many programs have begun to use donors with extended criteria (marginal donors). However, brain-dead patients with implanted mechanical circulatory support system have rarely been considered as potential lung donors. This case demonstrates the feasibility of lung transplantations from organ donors supported by a mechanical circulatory support system despite the possible difficulties of lung retrieval...

INTRODUCTION: Donation after circulatory death (DCD) is an underused source of donor lungs. Normothermic cellular ex vivo lung perfusion (EVLP) is effective in preserving standard donor lungs but may also be useful in the preservation and assessment of DCD lungs. METHODS: Using a model of DCD and prolonged EVLP, the effects of donor warm ischemia and postmortem ventilation on graft recovery were evaluated. Adult male swine underwent general anesthesia and heparinization...

Kidney transplantation is the treatment of choice for end-stage renal disease. Despite its superiority over dialysis, the persisting organ shortage remains a major drawback. Additional sources to increase the donor pool are grafts recovered from extended criteria donors (ECD) and donation after circulatory death (DCD). Although transplantation of marginal grafts demonstrates promising outcomes, increased rates of primary non-function, delayed graft function, and reduced graft survival have been reported. Cold ischemic injury, caused by static cold storage is a significant risk factor for poor outcome...

A 20-minute hands-off period with isoelectric electrocardiography (ECG) monitoring is currently required for the declaration of cardiac death in Italy, thus prolonging the warm ischemia time (WIT) during donation after circulatory death (DCD). Normothermic regional perfusion (NRP) can be a valid tool to optimize organ perfusion as a bridge to donation. A 62-year-old woman with catastrophic brain injury due to massive intracranial hemorrage, not fulfilling brain death criteria, underwent controlled DCD after withdrawal of life-sustaining therapies (WLST)...

BACKGROUND: Sepsis is the number one cause of lung injury in adults. Ex vivo lung perfusion (EVLP) is gaining clinical acceptance for donor lung evaluation and rehabilitation and may expand the use of marginal organs for transplantation. We hypothesized that 4 hours of normothermic EVLP would improve compliance and oxygenation in a porcine model of sepsis-induced lung injury. METHODS: We used intravenous lipopolysaccharide (LPS) to induce a systemic inflammatory response in a porcine model of lung injury...

Prolonged normothermic ex-vivo heart perfusion (NEVHP) could transform cardiac transplantation. To help identify perfusate components that might enable long-term perfusion, we evaluated the effects of cross-circulated whole blood and cross-circulated plasma from a live paracorporeal animal on donor porcine hearts preserved via NEVHP. Standard perfusion (n=40) utilized red blood cell/plasma perfusate and Langendorf technique for a goal of 12 hours. Cross-circulation groups used a similar circuit with the addition of cross-circulated venous whole blood (XC-Blood; n=6) or cross-circulated filtered plasma (XC-Plasma; n=7) between a live paracorporeal pig under anesthesia and the perfusate reservoir...

Normothermic ex vivo kidney perfusion (NEVKP) demonstrated superior results compared to hypothermic storage in donation after circulatory death (DCD) kidney transplantation. It is unknown whether an optimal perfusion time exists following hypothermic storage to allow for the recovery of renal grafts from cold ischemic injury. In a porcine model of DCD kidney autotransplantation, the impact of initial static cold storage (SCS) (8 h) followed by various periods of NEVKP recovery was investigated: group A, 8 hSCS only (control); group B, 8 hSCS + 1 hNEVKP (brief NEVKP); group C, 8 hSCS + 8 hNEVKP (intermediate NEVKP); and group D, 8 hSCS + 16 hNEVKP (prolonged NEVKP)...

BACKGROUND: Ex vivo perfusion (EVP) is a novel method of preservation. However, optimal perfusion conditions remain undetermined. Reducing the temperature of the perfusate to subnormothermia may be beneficial during EVP and improve early graft function. The aim of this study was to investigate whether subnormothermia would influence the conditioning effect of EVP when compared with normothermic perfusion, and standard cold static storage (CS). METHODS: Porcine kidneys underwent static CS for 23 hours followed by 1 hour of EVP using leukocyte-depleted blood at a mean temperature of 32°C or 37°C...

Respiratory diseases represent a major healthcare burden worldwide. Lung transplantation (LTx) is the "gold standard" for end-stage patients, strongly limited by shortage of available/suitable donor lungs. Normothermic ex vivo lung perfusion (EVLP) has significantly increased the number of lungs suitable for transplantation. Steen solution is used for EVLP, but the mechanisms involved in its beneficial properties remain to be clarified. We investigated the effects of Steen solution in an in vitro protocol of cold starvation and normothermic recovery on human lung spheroids, named pneumospheres (PSs), containing epithelial/basal cells, and on endothelial human umbilical vein endothelial cells (HUVEC)...

BACKGROUND: Ex vivo lung perfusion (EVLP) was primarily developed for evaluation of impaired donor lungs. The good clinical results raise the question for its possible impact on lungs meeting standard criteria. Before application of EVLP on such lungs enters routine clinical practice, it must be demonstrated whether EVLP would affect or improve outcome when used in standard donor lungs. We performed a prospective randomized trial to investigate the role of EVLP in standard lung transplantation (Tx)...

Ex vivo machine perfusion (MP) is a promising way to better preserve livers prior to transplantation. Currently, no methodology has a verified benefit over simple cold storage. Before becoming clinically feasible, MP requires validation in models that reliably predict human performance. Such a model has been found in porcine liver, whose physiological, anatomical, and immunological characteristics closely resemble the human liver. Since the 1930s, researchers have explored MP as preservation, but only recently have clinical trials been performed...

Ex vivo normothermic lung perfusion (EVLP) is a novel platform and method developed to facilitate functional assessment and implementation of advanced therapies for donor lungs prior to transplantation. This study aimed to determine the safety and immunological and functional benefits of ex vivo adenoviral human interleukin-10 (AdhIL-10) gene delivery to prevent the development of primary graft dysfunction in a large animal survival model. Pig donor lungs were retrieved, preserved for 6 h at 4°C, and then randomly assigned to four groups: (1) AdhIL-10 gene therapy: 12 h EVLP + AdhIL-10 intra-bronchial delivery; (2) EVLP-control: 12 h EVLP; (3) Vector-control: 12 h EVLP + adenoviral vector intra-bronchial delivery; and (4) prolonged hypothermic preservation: additional 12 h of cold ischemia...

BACKGROUND: We report the ability to extend lung preservation up to 24 hours (24H) by using autologous whole donor blood circulating within an ex vivo lung perfusion (EVLP) system. This approach facilitates donor lung reconditioning in a model of extended normothermic EVLP. We analyzed comparative responses to cellular and acellular perfusates to identify these benefits. METHODS: Twelve pairs of swine lungs were retrieved after cardiac arrest and studied for 24H on the Organ Care System (OCS) Lung EVLP platform...

BACKGROUND: Ex situ normothermic machine perfusion (NMP) can be performed after traditional static cold preservation to assess graft function and viability before transplantation. It is unknown whether this results in activation of coagulation and fibrinolysis, as may occur upon graft reperfusion in vivo. METHODS: Twelve donor livers declined for transplantation underwent 6 hours of end-ischemic NMP using a heparinized plasma-based perfusion fluid. Concentration of prothrombin fragment F1 + 2 (marker of coagulation activation), D-dimer, plasmin-antiplasmin complex, tissue plasminogen activator and plasminogen activator inhibitor-1 (markers for fibrinolysis) and alanine aminotransferase (ALT) (marker of ischemia-reperfusion [I/R] injury) were measured in perfusion fluid at regular intervals...

Inflammatory responses and innate immunologic reactions play an important role in the respiratory system. Ex vivo lung perfusion (EVLP) is considered a novel method in the evaluation and reconditioning of donor lungs prior to transplantation. However, EVLP's effect on inflammatory and metabolic markers of human lung tissue is unknown.  This study investigated how the performance of EVLP on brain-dead (BD) donor lungs affects the production and release of inflammatory cytokines (IL-6, IL-8, and TNF-a), inflammatory cells and toll-like receptors (TLR) -2, 4...
