Priority 9 from the Kidney Transplant PSP
|Extra information provided by this PSP
|Original uncertainty examples
Can we reduce donor and preservation injury ? Does normothermic reconditioning of kidneys improve outcomes? Is normothermic reconditioning of deceased donor kidneys effective and cost-effective? Does machine preservation, either hypothermic or normothermic, improve outcome of donation after cardiovascular kidneys? What is the best way of preserving kidneys between the donor and recipient? Which of the new types of preservation and perfusion work best in giving better outcome for kidney transplant? - especially when other diseases in the donor might threaten kidney function. Does hypothermic machine preservation with oxygenation improve outcomes compared to hypothermic perfusion alone? How do we increase potential preservation time?
