Abstract [en]

BACKGROUND: Simple cold storage (CS) is the gold standard for organ preservation. Recently, evidence has been presented suggesting compared with CS hypothermic machine perfusion (HMP) improves the quality and outcome of kidneys for transplantation. Uppsala has used the LifePort Kidney Transporter to preserve deceased donor kidneys. We evaluated our first single-center 52 cases retrospectively.

METHODS: Deceased donor kidneys preserved with HMP between July 2010 and July 2012 (n = 52) were compared with a matched historical cohort of organs preserved by CS between January 2009 and July 2012 (n = 87). We evaluated delayed graft function (DGF), creatinine level at hospital discharge, length of hospital stay, incidence of acute rejection episodes during the first year after transplantation, and graft survival.

RESULTS: Both groups included approximately 69% expanded criteria donors (ECD). Median cold ischemia time (CIT) was 12.8 hours in the HMP group and 11.7 hours in the CS group. The incidence of DGF was 11.5% with HMP and 20.7% with CS. Compared with CS, HMP significantly reduced the occurrence of DGF from 21.4% to 0% using standard criteria kidneys (P = .046), whereas the use of HMP did not impact the occurrence of DGF with ECD kidneys. The creatinine level at hospital discharge was lower after HMP than after CS (P = .047). No difference in graft survival was observed between the groups.

CONCLUSIONS: Machine perfusion resulted in a lower occurrence of DGF using kidneys from standard criteria donors with a lower creatinine at hospital discharge among the cohort with reasonably low CIT. Using machine perfusion seems to be safe; no adverse surgical events occurred during the study period.
