Cannon et al. performed a retrospective analysis of the UNOS database from January 2005 to March of 2011, which included 52,052 kidney recipients.
They found that there was:
- Significantly less DGF in both
- Propensity matched cohort (21.1% MP vs 29.1% SCS)
- Paired kidney cohort (19.7% MP vs 27.5% SCS)
- For every 12.5 kidneys treated with MP, one episode of DGF is prevented relative to the CS group
They concluded that, given this evidence of reduced DGF, it might be advisable to substantially expand the use of MP beyond the current levels in the United States.

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...
A recent review article by Dutkowski et al. looked at the evolving evidence for machine perfusion in liver transplantation. They explored the evidence and requirements for both HMP and NMP. They presented the following information: That endpoints need to be strictly...
