An electronic scale was installed under the liver container to record the increase of weight per min. Experience with liver and kidney allografts from non-heart-beating donors. Our Website uses cookies to improve your experience. The flow, pressure, intrahepatic resistance IRand temperature were recorded every 3 h for a total of 6 h during HMP. An electronic scale was installed under the liver container to calculate the portal inflow according to the association kjdney weight, density and volume of the perfusate.

Published online Dec 1. No significant difference was observed between the two regions. 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. China Find articles by Yan Xiong.

LifePort kidney transporter: a portable donor kidney transporter/ perfuser

Subsequently, the portal inflow per min was calculated according to the association with the volume, weight and density of perfusate. Unlike large animals, including pigs and rabbits, rats are best-suited for studying mechanisms associated with HMP due to the fact that a large data base from studies of rat livers enables effective comparison of observations; furthermore, the relatively low cost and low maintenance is beneficial Biochemical [alanine transaminase ALTlactate dehydrogenase LDH and endothelin levels] and histological parameters sinusoidal dilatation, lifsport cell detachment and vacuolization were measured to determine cellular damage associated with HMP.


Five-year experience with donation after cardiac death kidney transplantation in a Canadian transplant program: Protective effects of a carbon monoxide-releasing molecule CORM-3 during hepatic cold preservation.

A Perfusion oscillogram with high frequency and small wave range under the prime mode of the LifePort.

C Morphometric analysis suggested that post-HMP samples had a 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 solubility of oxygen in physiological salines. One-year results of a prospective, randomized trial comparing two machine perfusion devices used for kidney preservation. A; Nanjing Jiancheng Bioengineering Institute according to the manufacturer’s instructions. Although the automation of this system requires further modification, the present results suggest that, using the modified system, the demands of flow and pressure during continuous HMP via the rat portal vein can be met, while the dependability and portability of the LifePort are retained.

Cold ischemia and physical injury due to HMP are major cellular damages that occur during the perfusion period Functionality and use of design The LifePort kidney Transporter gently perfuses kidneys with cold physiologic solution to improve orden condition during transport to transplant recipient.

B Overall appearance of the modified Kidhey system. Liver histology Liver samples were analyzed using hematoxylin and eosin staining Fig. Delivery of the translorter gas hydrogen sulfide during cold preservation of rat liver: Drawbacks of life improvement none known Research and need The product addresses the serious need for donation organs.

During HMP, although a significant decrease was observed between 0 0. Continuous HMP via the portal vein for liver preservation is capable of simulating hemodynamics of the portal vein and has been widely applied in a number of previous studies 1221 Therefore, to assess the extent of cellular damage, biochemical and histological parameters were investigated to judge the damage profile due liffport HMP.


National Center for Biotechnology InformationU.

However, the pulsatile perfusion and size of the piping system is not suitable for rat livers. In a study presented to the XIX International Congress of the Transplantation Society Jacobi et al found that machine preservation improved the condition of kidneys and was an effective organ evaluation tool. Detection of endothelin was performed to determine the level of shear stress and pressure damage to the endothelial cell layer due to HMP. Determination of an adequate perfusion pressure for continuous dual vessel hypothermic machine perfusion of the rat liver.

The Lifeport Kidney Transporter

ALT 0 h, Can Urol Assoc J. When creating this portable device it was vital that the extensive engineering complexities were solved, and it had to be easily transported by a wide variety of hospital personnel and air and other transport personnel.

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

HMP may immediately terminate once the perfusion pressure exceeds the upper limit of the LifePort.

The system consisted transprter a rat liver container for perfusion that was installed in the sterile drape of the LifePort Kidney Transporter 1.
