Hypothermic machine perfusion improves Doppler ultrasonography resistive indices and long-term allograft function after renal transplantation: a single-centre analysis

This retrospective study evaluated the impact of hypothermic machine perfusion (HMP) on Doppler ultrasound parameters and graft function in paired kidneys (n=15 pairs), where the kidney maintained with HMP had a longer cold ischemia period. Potential benefits in kidneys obtained from donation after cardiac death (DCD) versus donation after brain death (DBD) subgroups were also investigated. Read More ›

Delayed graft function and the risk of acute rejection in the modern era of kidney transplantation

Delayed graft function (DGF) is a common complication experienced by kidney transplant recipients and has been associated with poor clinical outcomes, making it a potential risk factor for acute rejection. This observational study aimed to evaluate the association of DGF and biopsy-driven acute rejection (BPAR) in kidney transplant recipients (n=645) in a Canadian transplant center over 12 years.

In conversation with Dr. Jacques Malaise, Centre Hospitalier de l'Université de Montréal

Please share with us some information about your center… We are one of six transplant centers in Québec province. At our center we do about 70–80 deceased and living donor kidney transplants each year and between 15–20 living donor transplants…(Read more). Machine perfusion: not just for marginal kidney donors In a recently published article, researchers set out to determine the potential benefit of hypothermic machine perfusion (HMP) for standard criteria donors (SCDs).

Abstract #P702: ESOT 2015 Hypothermic machine perfusion of kidneys from living donors

J. Malaise, et al. Universite de Montréal, Québec, Canada While HMP has been widely studied in deceased donor kidneys, a group from Université de Montréal, Canada, investigated hypothermic machine perfusion (HMP) as a means for reducing the occurrence of potential adverse effects during travel in paired kidney exchange programs.
