Hydrogen Flush After Cold Storage as a New End ‐Ischemic Ex Vivo Treatment for Liver Grafts Against Ischemia/Reperfusion Injury
Cold storage (CS) remains the gold standard for organ preservation worldwide, although it is inevitably associated with ischemia/reperfusion injury (IRI). Molecular hydrogen (H2) is well known to have antioxidative properties. However, its unfavorable features, ie, inflammability, low solubility, and high tissue/substance permeability, have hampered its clinical application. To overcome such obstacles, we developed a novel reconditioning method for donor organs named hydrogen flush after cold storage (HyFACS), which is just an end ‐ischemic H2 flush directly to donor organs ex vivo, and, herein, we report its therapeutic...

Is Portal Venous Pressure Modulation Still Indicated for All Recipients in Living Donor Liver Transplantation?
We examined our 10‐year experience of PVP modulation and reevaluated whether it was necessary for all recipients or for selected recipients in ALDLT. In this retrospective study, 319 patients who underwent ALDLT from 2007 to 2016 were divided into 3 groups according to the necessity and results of PVP modulation: not indicated (n = 189), indicated and succeeded (n = 92), and indicated but failed (n = 38). Graft survival and associations with var ious clinical factors were investigated. PVP modulation was performed mainly by splenectomy to lower final PVP to ≤15 mm Hg. Successful PVP modulation improved prognosis to be...

Aortic Versus Dual Perfusion for Retrieval of the Liver After Brain Death: A National Registry Analysis
There is lack of consensus in the literature regarding the comparative efficacy of in situ aortic ‐only compared with dual (aortic and portal venous) perfusion for retrieval and transplantation of the liver. Recipient outcomes from the Australia/New Zealand Liver Transplant Registry (2007‐2016), including patient and graft survival and causes of graft loss, were stratified by perfusion route . Subgroup analyses were conducted for higher‐risk donors. A total of 1382 liver transplantation recipients were analyzed (957 aortic‐only; 425 dual perfusion). There were no significant differences in 5‐year graft and patien...

Living Donor Liver Transplantation Using Selected Grafts With 2 Bile Ducts Compared With 1 Bile Duct Does Not Impact Patient Outcome
The outcome after living donor liver transplantation (LDLT) using grafts with multiple bile ducts (BDs) remains unclear. We analyzed 510 patients who received an adult ‐to‐adult right lobe LDLT between 2000 and 2015 and compared outcome parameters of those receiving grafts with 2 BDs (n = 169) with patients receiving grafts with 1 BD (n = 320). Additionally, patients receiving a graft with 3 BDs (n = 21) were analyzed. Demographic variables and disease severit y were similar between the groups. Roux‐en‐Y reconstruction was significantly more common in the 2 BD group (77% versus 38%;P

Combined Dual ‐Kidney Liver Transplantation in the United States: A Review of United Network for Organ Sharing/Organ Procurement and Transplantation Network Data Between 2002 and 2012
In kidney ‐alone recipients, dual‐kidney transplantation using “higher‐risk” donor organs has shown outcomes comparable to those of single‐kidney transplantation using extended criteria donor (ECD) organs. To investigate the feasibility of a similar approach with combined kidney‐liver transplant ation, we identified 22 dual‐kidney liver transplantations (DKLTs) and 3044 single‐kidney liver transplantations (SKLTs) performed in the United States between 2002 and 2012 using United Network for Organ Sharing/Organ Procurement and Transplantation Network registry data.
