In collaboration with Gift of Hope Organ & Tissue Donor Network, we’re proud to provide two videos around kidney perfusion on the Organ Recovery Systems Client Community!
Kidney Perfusion Improves Transplant Success describes how Gift of Hope uses HMP technology in their organization. Learn more about machine perfusion using LifePort® Kidney Transporter and how it helps transplant teams improve patient outcomes and save lives.
In Kidney Perfusion Improves Patient Outcomes, earn CEUs while diving into how Gift of Hope is reducing delayed graft function by using LifePort Kidney Transporter.
Let us know what you think, and keep sharing the knowledge!
Gift of Hope Organ & Tissue Donor Network coordinates the organ and tissue donation process and provides education about the importance of organ and tissue donation to the public and healthcare professionals in Illinois and northwest Indiana. Since 1986, their efforts have saved the lives of more than 23,000 organ transplant recipients and improved the lives of hundreds of thousands of tissue transplant recipients.

In this powerful video, we meet David, a liver recipient who shares his journey of needing a liver transplant. David speaks about the emotional and physical toll of waiting for a liver to become available, not knowing when or if he would receive that call. David takes...
Changing liver utilization and discard rates in clinical transplantation in the ex-vivo machine preservation era
A recent review article by Azizieh et al. focused on the implementation of ex-vivo machine preservation and how it might change the perception of organ acceptability. By focusing on machine perfusion, they explored the effects of the different modalities on outcomes...
Therapeutic Hypothermia or Hypothermic Machine Perfusion (HMP) which is best for Kidney Transplant Outcomes?
In 2023, Malinoski et al. published the results from a pragmatic, adaptive, prospective, randomized trial that was conducted between August 10, 2017, and May 21, 2020 involving six OPOs in the US. They sought to determine whether targeted mild hypothermia is as...
