Does ex vivo vascular resistance reflect viability of non-heart-beating donor livers?



Does ex vivo vascular resistance reflect viability of non-heart-beating donor livers?



Transplantation Proceedings 37(1): 338-339



Aims. The use of non-heart-beating (NHB) donor livers is limited by a higher risk for primary nonfunction and the absence of methods to measure this risk. This study was designed to determine whether ex vivo vascular resistance of livers correlates with the length of warm ischemia (WI), and, thus, with viability of NHB livers.Methods. Porcine livers were recovered after 0, 45, or 90 minutes WI. Livers were flushed by gravity and cold stored for 3 hours.
