ILTS poster Cambridge

In case you missed the poster at the ILTS congress in Chicago (July 2015). The University of Cambridge presented two cases of pre-implant Normothermic perfusion of donor livers. The group of Prof. Chris Watson at Cambridge University Hospital uses a Liver Assist device to recondition and evaluate the quality of donor livers.

The conclusion is clear: Pre-implant normothermic perfusion of the liver offers promise as a way of evaluating a marginal liver before implantation and may modify the response to ischemia.
