Both family consent and legal consent were required for organ/tissue donation from non‐heart‐beating donors (NHBD) in Taiwan. A district attorney had to come to the bedside to confirm the donor's asystole, confirm the family consent, and complete some legal documents before a legal consent was issued for organ donation. The resultant warm ischemic time would be unpredictably long and in fact precluded the organ donation from NHBD in Taiwan. We developed a method of using extracorporeal membrane… 

Expanding the donor pool: use of renal transplants from non‐heart‐beating donors supported with extracorporeal membrane oxygenation

The long‐term allograft survival and function of kidneys from NHBDs supported by ECMO, HBD, and LD did not differ significantly and long ECMO running time tended to delay graft function.

The use of in-situ normothermic extracorporeal perfusion and leukocyte depletion for resuscitation of human donor kidneys

Treatment of ischemically damaged kidneys by normothermic extracorporeal perfusion, with leukocyte depletion before procurement, seems to be a challenging protocol and demands further study.

Heart-Beating and Non-Heart-Beating Donors

In the clinical setting, NEC MO has been demonstrated to offer the possibility to obtain good quality grafts for transplant both in controlled and in uncontrolled DCD, and in some countries ECMO has been used to support brain death (BD) multiorgan donors in case in which it is not possible to complete death assessment for cardiac or respiratory failure.

Development of a preclinical model of donation after circulatory determination of death for translational application

The authors' ANOR model is the closest to clinical conditions reported in the literature and will allow the study of the systemic and abdominal organ impact of this technique, and will permit the determination of new biomarkers and protocols to improve DCD donor management.

Livers from controlled donation after circulatory death (DCD) donors suffer a higher incidence of nonfunction, poor function, and ischemic cholangiopathy. In situ normothermic regional perfusion

Lung Physiology During ECS Resuscitation of DCD Donors Followed by In Situ Assessment of Lung Function

Extracorporeal cardiopulmonary support of DCD donors is feasible and allows for assessment of function before procurement, and pulmonary congestion does not cause pulmonary congestion, and the lungs retain adequate function for transplantation.

Abdominal regional in-situ perfusion in donation after circulatory determination of death donors

ARP is an important form of donor maintenance that helps improve DCD organ viability and may help expand the applicability of transplantation using organs arising through this process.

The use of extracorporeal membranous oxygenation in donors after cardiac death

The use of ECMO in donors after cardio-circulatory death should be encouraged and further developed to better define the optimal conditions of the technique, which will help to limit or even repair the injuries, induced by warm ischaemia.

Non-heartbeating donation of kidneys for transplantation

The proportion of NHB donor kidneys in the total pool of postmortem kidneys differs considerably between countries, and in The Netherlands, the proportion is nearly 50%.



Experience With Liver And Kidney Allografts From Non‐Heart-Beating Donors

This study shows that the procurement of kidneys from both uncontrolled and controlled NHBD leads to acceptable graft function despite a high incidence of ATN, and the function of liver allografts is adequate in thecontrolled NHBD but suboptimal in the uncontrolled NHBD, with a high rate of PNF.

Transplantation of kidneys from donors whose hearts have stopped beating.

Role of the accident and emergency department in the non-heart-beating donor programme in Leicester.

The NHBD programme in Leicester has proved very successful, requiring organisation of resources and personnel both from the transplant service and the A&E department, and other hospitals with large A&e departments should consider setting up similar programmes.

Exploration of the system for cadaver kidney transplantation with the non-heart-beating donor: efficacy of in situ cooling and low-dose cyclosporine.

It is believed that the restriction of warm ischemic damage will be decreased by using the ISC procedure and low-dose CyA regimen for cadaveric kidney donor.

Utilization of kidneys from non-heart-beating donors by portable cardiopulmonary bypass.

Twenty percent more kidneys through a non-heart beating program.

Update on the results of non-heart-beating donor kidney transplants.
