Summary
EVNP DCD Kidney Trial
To determine if a short period of reconditioning using EVNP (Ex-vivo Normothermic Perfusion) improves initial graft function in DCD (donors after circulatory death) kidney transplantation.
Study hypothesis
EVNP DCD Kidney Trial
Normothermic perfusion techniques offer an alternative form of organ preservation and resuscitation that has the potential to limit some of the effects of hypothermic preservation techniques. EVNP is a novel technique that may help to recondition ischaemically injured kidneys prior to transplantation. The aim of EVNP is to restore metabolism and function to the kidney prior to transplantation by circulating a warm oxygenated red cell based solution through the kidney.
Study design
EVNP DCD Kidney Trial
A randomised controlled, open label trial with 1:1 allocation to either EVNP or cold storage (the current standard).
