Background: Donation after circulatory death (DCD) is an accepted strategy to widen organ procurement worldwide. Authorized centers in Italy are spreading, increasing kidney transplantation (KTX) from DCD donors (40 in 2017 vs 24 in 2016). In this study, we describe DCD KTX activity at the University of Modena and Reggio Emilia (Modena, Italy) since its beginning in November 2017. Methods: We retrospectively studied DCD KTX performed in our center from November 2017 to June 2018. We considered donor characteristics (age, sex, cause of death) and recipient clinical data (length of hospital stay, serum creatinine, estimated glomerular filtration rate, delayed graft function [DGF]), primary nonfunction [PNF], HLA match). All the grafts underwent in situ normothermic (ExtraCorporeal Membrane Oxygenation-ECMO) and ex situ hypothermic oxygenated perfusion (HOPE) with Kidney Assist machines. We monitored ex situ perfusion solution biochemical (lactate dehydrogenase [LDH] and lactate) and dynamic (resistance and flow) parameters. A kidney biopsy was performed for allocation strategy according to Karpinski score. Results: We performed 6 kidney transplants (3 single and 3 double); the mean recipient (57.5 ± 4.9) and donor age (57.3 ± 7.5) were similar. Mean ECMO duration was 3 h 27 ± 57 min, HOPE was 4 h 47 min ± 119 min, lactate sample values (collected every 15 minutes from the beginning of perfusion) were always lower than1.6 mmol/L, and LDH maximum value was 400 UI/L. Median cold ischemia time was 11 h 18 min. Mean Karpinski score was 3.6; mean HLA match 1.7.We experienced 1 DGF (16.6%), no PNF, with a mean hospital stay of 14.6 days, mean creatinine at hospital discharge 2 ± 1.04 mg/dL), and mean eGFR 53.8 ±27.3 mL/min); at 1 month, mean creatinine and eGFR were 2 ± 1.34 mg/dL and 59.8 ± 24.5 mL/min, respectively. Conclusions: DCD is a promising resource for increasing organ donation. The Emilia Romagna regional organization allowed short ischemia times, with solid KTX outcomes, supporting further development of this program.

Abstract

Background: Donation after circulatory death (DCD) is an accepted strategy to widen organ procurement worldwide. Authorized centers in Italy are spreading, increasing kidney transplantation (KTX) from DCD donors (40 in 2017 vs 24 in 2016). In this study, we describe DCD KTX activity at the University of Modena and Reggio Emilia (Modena, Italy) since its beginning in November 2017. Methods: We retrospectively studied DCD KTX performed in our center from November 2017 to June 2018. We considered donor characteristics (age, sex, cause of death) and recipient clinical data (length of hospital stay, serum creatinine, estimated glomerular filtration rate, delayed graft function [DGF]), primary nonfunction [PNF], HLA match). All the grafts underwent in situ normothermic (ExtraCorporeal Membrane Oxygenation-ECMO) and ex situ hypothermic oxygenated perfusion (HOPE) with Kidney Assist machines. We monitored ex situ perfusion solution biochemical (lactate dehydrogenase [LDH] and lactate) and dynamic (resistance and flow) parameters. A kidney biopsy was performed for allocation strategy according to Karpinski score. Results: We performed 6 kidney transplants (3 single and 3 double); the mean recipient (57.5 ± 4.9) and donor age (57.3 ± 7.5) were similar. Mean ECMO duration was 3 h 27 ± 57 min, HOPE was 4 h 47 min ± 119 min, lactate sample values (collected every 15 minutes from the beginning of perfusion) were always lower than1.6 mmol/L, and LDH maximum value was 400 UI/L. Median cold ischemia time was 11 h 18 min. Mean Karpinski score was 3.6; mean HLA match 1.7.We experienced 1 DGF (16.6%), no PNF, with a mean hospital stay of 14.6 days, mean creatinine at hospital discharge 2 ± 1.04 mg/dL), and mean eGFR 53.8 ±27.3 mL/min); at 1 month, mean creatinine and eGFR were 2 ± 1.34 mg/dL and 59.8 ± 24.5 mL/min, respectively. Conclusions: DCD is a promising resource for increasing organ donation.
