The system consisted of a rat liver container for perfusion that was installed in the sterile drape of the LifePort Kidney Transporter 1. China Find articles by Xianpeng Zeng. By transoorter, 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.


A retrospective review of transplant data indicates that these perfused kidneys function better after transplant than statically stored kidneys. Drawbacks of life improvement none known Research and need The product addresses the serious need for donation organs. The protective mechanisms for liver preservation associated with hypothermic machine perfusion HMP remain unclear. Introduction To overcome the shortage of brain-dead donors for liver transplantation, extended criteria donors ECDs have been used 1.

Therefore, an electronic scale under the liver container was installed in the present study and the change of weight per min during HMP was measured.

However, the pulsatile perfusion and size of the piping system is not suitable for rat livers. Biochemical [alanine transaminase ALTlactate dehydrogenase LDH and endothelin levels] and histological parameters sinusoidal dilatation, endothelial cell detachment and vacuolization were measured to determine cellular damage associated with HMP. Liver samples were analyzed using hematoxylin and eosin staining Fig.

Extended criteria donors in liver transplantation Part I: Similarly, histological observations indicated the general morphology of the parenchyma was preserved and sinusoidal dilatation was significantly increased in post-HMP tissues compared with pre-HMP tissues.


Continuous HMP via the trandporter vein for liver preservation is capable of simulating hemodynamics of the portal vein and has been lifeoprt applied in a number of previous studies 1221 An electronic scale was installed under the liver container to calculate the portal inflow according to the association with weight, density and volume of the perfusate.

Another poly ethylene catheter outer diameter, 3. Reviewing the impact of determining factors. Support Center Support Center.

Joint impact of donor and recipient parameters on the outcome of liver transplantation in Germany. Hypothermic machine preservation in human liver transplantation: Abstract The protective mechanisms for liver preservation associated with hypothermic lifepory perfusion HMP remain unclear.

The Lifeport Kidney Transporter

In general, Lifeport stops automatically once excessive pressure occurs. C-side was connected to the infuse line and A-side was connected to the pressoreceptor.

Oxygen consumption OC is a marker of hepatic metabolic activity Moreover, the graft viability can lfieport assessed by the perfusate tests and perfusion indexes 9. Longterm results of liver transplantation from donation after circulatory death.

Outcome of liver transplantation using donors older than 60 years of age. H; Nanjing Jiancheng Bioengineering Institute in accordance with the manufacturer’s protocol. China Find articles by Cheng Zeng. Therefore, it was concluded that HMP of rat livers resulted in complete and homogeneous perfusion at a rate of 0. Data management and sample collection The flow, pressure, intrahepatic resistance IRand temperature were recorded every 3 h for a total of 6 h during HMP.

Influence of perfusate on liver viability during hypothermic machine perfusion. The dynamics inflow, pressure and intrahepatic resistance of perfusion were assessed to identify whether this system met the demands for HMP of rat livers.

Once the abdomen was exposed by performing a midline incision and the liver was freed from the ligamentous attachments, the trznsporter bile duct was cannulated using an epidural guiding tube Jiangsu Changfeng Medical Industry Co.


In Vitro Cell Dev Biol. One-year results of a prospective, randomized trial comparing two machine perfusion devices used for kidney preservation. In the present study, a simple modification was made to the LifePort Kidney Transporter to ensure HMP for rat liver while retaining portability.

Published online Dec 1. Kamada N, Calne RY. China Find articles by Xiaoyan Hu. C Morphometric analysis suggested that post-HMP samples had trajsporter significantly increased percentage of sinusoidal dilatation compared with pre-HMP samples; although no significant aggravation of endothelial cell detachment and hepatocellular vacuolization was observed.

The Lifeport Kidney Transporter – INDEX: Design to Improve Life®

No significant difference was observed between the two regions. To assess changes in morphology, samples were obtained and analyzed via hematoxylin and eosin staining of a peripheral biopsy following the completion of flush in situ pre-HMP sample and a peripheral biopsy at the end of HMP post-HMP sample.

Every point was recorded for the incidence of sinusoidal dilatation, sinusoidal endothelial cell detachment, vacuolization, and the percentage in each observation was calculated, as described previously The images were analyzed using the point-counting method within grids that contained 80 points combined with ImageJ 1.

In a study presented to the XIX Ljfeport Congress of the Transplantation Society Jacobi et al found that machine preservation improved the condition of kidneys and was an effective organ evaluation tool. At the end of hypothermic machine perfusion, samples at points a, b, c and d of CR and transporrer, b’, c’ and d’ points of PR were obtained.

How did this design improve life? The LifePort Kidney Transporter preserves and protects a donated kidney transportr the sometimes long, cold journey from recovery to transplantation.
