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.

HMP of Kidneys Compensates for Extended Storage Time: A Single Intervention With a Significant Impact
A study out of Poland by Kruszyna and Richter sought to determine whether with increased cold ischemic times (CIT) and increased use of extended criteria donors (ECD), would hypothermic machine perfusion (HMP) still have the potential to improve outcomes in kidney...
In a multicenter, randomized, controlled trial by Van Rijn, et al, they sought to compare hypothermic oxygenated machine perfusion with static cold storage in liver transplantation from donation after cardiac death (DCD) donors. In this trial, they included 156...
A multicenter retrospective study by de Sandes-Freitas et al. sought to determine the national rate of delayed graft function (DGF) and the associated risk factors with DGF. They studied 8,657 single deceased donor kidney transplants between January 2014 and December...
