Evaluation of outcomes in renal transplantation with hypothermic machine perfusion for the preservation of kidneys from expanded-criteria donors

A recently released article by Savoye et al. used the data collected by The French National Transplant Registry (CRISTAL) following the implementation of a nationwide hypothermic machine perfusion (HMP) program for extended criteria donor (ECD) kidney transplants.

The study included 4,316 transplants, 801 of which used HMP. Overall, they confirmed that even though the HMP transplant population was at higher risk for delayed graft function (DGF), HMP compared with cold storage (CS) protected against DGF (adjusted OR=0.49 with a 24% DGF rate in the HMP group versus 38% in the CS group).
