Extended criteria donors in liver transplantation Part I: Combined with the results of ATP test Representative histological findings and morphometric analysis of pre- and post-HMP samples. HMP may immediately terminate once the perfusion pressure exceeds the upper limit of the LifePort. In general, Transproter stops automatically once excessive pressure occurs.

A Perfusion oscillogram with high frequency and small wave range under the prime mode of the LifePort. The primary concern in the use of the LifePort for HMP preservation of rat liver is that the size of the infusion line is not suitable for the rat portal vein.

Prevention of functional and ultrastructural impairments by venous oxygen persufflation. In addition an Engineering focus on lightweight materials, low power consumption, thermal efficiency, fail-safety, clinical integration, and organ preservation science became key aspects of the LifePort design.

The levels of sinusoidal dilatation, endothelial cell detachment and vacuolization were determined by two independent operators. The device prolongs cold storage time from the current 18 hours to 35 hours or more.

Therefore, it was concluded that HMP of rat livers resulted in complete and homogeneous perfusion at a rate of 0. Therefore, the operator was required to monitor the change of pressure prior to IR transportet, particularly at the beginning of HMP.


An application on prefixed conditions.

AO and PI positive cells were counted in each field. Hypothermic machine perfusion versus cold storage in the rescuing of livers from non-heart-beating donor rats. China Find articles by Cheng Zeng. Effects on hepatic function in an ex vivo model. Joint impact of donor and recipient teansporter on the outcome of liver transplantation in Germany.

No significant difference was observed between the two regions. The solubility of oxygen in physiological salines. Transpofter results of liver transplantation from donation after circulatory death. Fluorescent dyes for cell viability: The level of endothelin in the hepatic effluent every 3 h of the 6-h HMP period was assessed using a commercialized assay kit cat no.

Data management and sample collection The flow, pressure, intrahepatic resistance IRand temperature were recorded every 3 h for a total of 6 h during Tranpsorter.

The Lifeport Kidney Transporter

Introduction To overcome the shortage of brain-dead donors for liver transplantation, extended criteria donors ECDs have been used 1. Expert Rev Gastroenterol Hepatol. China Find articles by Yan Xiong.

Compared with cold storage, hypothermic machine perfusion HMPa dynamic preservation technique, results in continuous delivery of transporher for cellular energy reconstitution, supply of metabolic substrates, washout of residual erythrocytes, thrombi and toxic metabolic byproducts. The system consisted of a rat liver container for perfusion that was installed in the sterile drape of the LifePort Kidney Transporter 1. The lack of effective integration of these equipment was the major obstacle associated with the portability of HMP, leading to restriction for its implementation.

By contrast, according to the preliminary results in the present study, the prime mode of Lifeport could achieve continuous perfusion, which was indicated by the oscillogram with a high frequency and small wave range.

AO was used to stain viable cells a green, whereas dead cells were detected by red PI staining. National Center for Biotechnology InformationU. It has been reported that OC of the normal rat liver during warm reperfusion was 1. At the end of hypothermic machine perfusion, samples at points a, b, c and d of CR and a’, b’, c’ and d’ points of PR were obtained.

Delivery of the bioactive gas hydrogen sulfide during cold preservation of rat liver: C The modified system installed on the LifePort. The differences between the dynamic perfusion parameters at three analyzed time points 0, 3 and 6 h were analyzed using one-way analysis of variance and the Least Significant Difference test for multiple comparisons.

Compared with these results, the levels of OC in our experiment were lower but constant over the 6-h time period of HMP Fig.
