They found that:
- Direct bubble oxygenation of the perfusion fluid by minimum 15 min was as efficient as membrane oxygenation
- All groups had similar renal flow
- All groups had similar perfusate profiles at 4h 30m and end of HMP
- At the end of HMP, the continuous oxygenated group had higher FMN values
- Histological tissue evaluation showed no significant difference between all groups
Overall, intermittent surface oxygenation might be an effective oxygenation strategy to recondition mitochondria during HMP as compared with membrane-oxygenation. This method has the potential to reduce the ecological and economic impact of active oxygenation by eliminating the need for a membrane oxygenator and oxygen source during transport.

Brief Bubble and Intermittent Surface Oxygenation Is a Simple and Effective Alternative for Membrane Oxygenation During Hypothermic Machine Perfusion in Kidneys
A study by Darius et al. sought to evaluate the use of direct bubble and intermittent surface oxygenation during continuous HMP as an alternative to using a membrane oxygenator. They evaluated the renal flow, resistance and concentration of pO2 in the perfusate as...
First clinical kidney transplantation series using brief bubble and direct surface oxygenation as alternative for membrane oxygenation during HMP
A study by Darius et al. reported on the first 5 cases of using the method of bubble and intermittent surface oxygenation during HMP in human renal transplantation. This case study provided information on 3 DCD donors of which 5 of the 6 kidneys were allocated to...
