Abstract / Description of output

Donation after circulatory death (DCD) donors are an increasingly more common source of livers for transplantation in many parts of the world. Events that occur during DCD liver recovery have a significant impact on the success of subsequent transplantation. This working group of the International Liver Transplantation Society evaluated current evidence as well as combined experience and created this guidance on DCD liver procurement. Best practices for the recovery and transplantation of livers arising through DCD after euthanasia and organ procurement with super rapid cold preservation and recovery as well as postmortem normothermic regional perfusion are described, as are the use of adjuncts during DCD liver procurement.
