BACKGROUND Diabetes insipidus is common among brain-dead donors and may lead to decreased graft function. The use of desmopressin to limit the consequences of diabetes insipidus is controversial. We assessed the effects of desmopressin administered to brain-dead donors on early and long-term graft function in kidney recipients. METHODS In a randomised(More)
BACKGROUND Machine perfusion (MP) has potential benefits for marginal organs such as from deceased from cardiac death donors (DCD). However, there is still no consensus on MP benefits. We aimed to determine machine perfusion benefits on kidney grafts. METHODS We evaluated kidney grafts preserved in ViaspanUW or KPS solutions either by CS or MP, in a DCD(More)
BACKGROUND Extracorporeal membranous oxygenation is proposed for abdominal organ procurement from donation after circulatory determination of death (DCD). In France, the national Agency of Biomedicine supervises the procurement of kidneys from DCD, specifying the durations of tolerated warm and cold ischemia. However, no study has determined the optimal(More)
