The Alliance Conversation Series
Use of NMP in DCD Liver Transplant: Balancing Utility and Costs

Presented on: Tuesday, July 18, 2023

The liver transplant community is continually challenged by a lack of donor livers to adequately meet the needs of transplant candidates. Recently, there has been a rapid increase in the number of liver donors with suboptimal donor criteria, particularly DCD donors. These “hard to place livers “present a challenge to both OPOs and transplant centers for different reasons. The advent of liver perfusion represents a potential opportunity to increase utilization of “hard to place livers” but limitations of these technologies must also be acknowledged.

  • Understand the current landscape of deceased organ donation and suboptimal donor organ potential.
  • Understand why some organs are difficult to place from a recipient transplant center perspective.
  • Describe clinical utility of liver perfusion.
  • Discuss cost management approaches for liver perfusion.

Members of the donation and transplantation community serving diverse populations to include administrators, coordinators, physicians, nurses, surgeons, managers, quality improvement specialists, social workers, and other donation and transplantation center professionals and their colleagues.
