The Lifeport Kidney Transporter

Cold ischemia and physical injury due to HMP are major cellular damages that occur during the perfusion period Endoplasmic tranzporter vascular surface activation during organ preservation: To overcome the shortage of brain-dead donors for liver transplantation, extended criteria donors Transportre have been used 1. Assessment of islet cell viability using fluorescent dyes.

Oxygen consumption OC is a marker of hepatic metabolic activity A surgical experience with five hundred thirty liver transplants in the rat. Endothelin secreted from sinusoidal endothelial cells is capable of reflecting cellular shear stress and pressure response induced by HMP Perfusate samples from the portal inflow and the catheter cannulated lifeporrt suprahepatic vena cava were respectively collected and measured using a pH-blood gas analyzer i-STAT; Abbott Point of Care, Inc.

Abstract The protective mechanisms for liver preservation associated with hypothermic machine perfusion HMP remain unclear. Therefore, it was concluded that HMP of rat livers resulted in ttansporter and homogeneous perfusion at a rate of 0. The images were analyzed using the point-counting method within grids that contained 80 points combined with ImageJ 1.

OC, ATP production and bile production were markers to assess cellular metabolic activity. The flow, pressure, intrahepatic resistance IRand temperature were recorded every 3 h for a total of 6 h during HMP. The lifepprt consisted of a rat liver container for perfusion that was installed in the sterile drape of the LifePort Kidney Transporter 1. B-side was the shunt side for decreasing the portal inflow and avoiding termination of LifePort due to excessive pressure under Prime mode.

An application on prefixed conditions. 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 AO and PI positive cells were counted in each field.


China Find articles by Qifa Ye. The level of endothelin in the hepatic effluent every 3 h of the 6-h HMP period was assessed using a commercialized assay kit cat no. It has been reported that OC of the normal rat liver during warm reperfusion was 1. A total of 10 rat livers underwent 6 h of HMP using histidine-tryptophan-ketoglutarate solution enriched with acridine orange AO and propidium iodide PI.

Drawbacks of life improvement none known Research and need The product addresses the serious need for donation organs. Bile was collected from the tube placed in the common bile duct at the end of HMP. 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 Nowadays, it has been demonstrated that cold storage, a traditional organ preservation technique, cannot meet the demands of ECD preservation due to the reduced ischemic tolerance of these marginal grafts 78.

Reviewing the impact of determining factors.

LifePort kidney transporter: a portable donor kidney transporter/ perfuser

Effects on hepatic function in an ex vivo model. In addition, the maintained hepatic OC levels, and ATP and bile production observed in the present study, which were consistent with a previous study using a similar HMP system 12suggested that transproter cellular metabolic activity was effectively preserved following HMP preservation for 6 h.

An electronic scale was installed under the liver container to record the increase of weight per min. Furthermore, vacuolization has been demonstrated as a sign of cell injury associated with HMP 10 Role of oxygen during hypothermic machine perfusion preservation of the liver. Open in a separate window. No significant difference was observed between the two regions. Curr Opin Organ Transplant.

Liver histology Liver samples were analyzed using hematoxylin and eosin staining Fig. Refining upon the benefits of machine perfusion. In the present study the development of a novel HMP system using a LifePort Kidney Transporter for rat livers was conducted to demonstrate its feasibility for rat liver preservation. The solubility of oxygen in physiological salines. 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.


Joint impact of donor and recipient parameters on the outcome of liver transplantation in Germany. In general, Lifeport stops automatically once excessive pressure occurs. C The modified system installed on the LifePort. China Find articles by Xiaoyan Hu. 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.

ALT 0 h, In previous studies, the HMP system for rat livers typically contained a roller pump, liver container, a bubbler to deliver air, a flowmeter to measure flow, a nylon filter to prevent the recirculation of cellular debris and blood clots, a water column to measure the perfusion pressure, and a cooling system to maintain the hypothermic condition for perfusion 1221 Rapid assessment of islet viability with acridine orange and propidium iodide.

Hypothermic machine perfusion versus cold storage in the rescuing of livers from non-heart-beating donor rats. Can Urol Assoc J. The LifePort Kidney Transporter preserves and protects a donated kidney during the sometimes long, cold journey from recovery to transplantation. During HMP, although the levels of ALT and LDH were significantly increased over the total 6-h time period, endothelin release, which is typically used to reflect the levels of cellular shear stress and pressure caused by HMP 25did not significantly increase.

Liceport increase of perfusion resistance due to the relatively small volume of rat liver and large flow of the LifePort kiddney prime mode typically initiates the prevention function and causes the machine to stop.
