Heart Transplantation Using Normothermic Regional Perfusion (NRP) Donation After Circulatory Death (DCD): A Pilot Study

Brief description of study

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the feasibility and safety of heart transplantation using normothermic regional perfusion (NRP) donation after circulatory death (DCD). Normothermic regional perfusion is a surgical technique to circulate blood throughout the organ donor’s body after they expire. This technique allows physicians to perform a thorough analysis of the donor’s organs prior to transplantation. Donation after circulatory death (DCD) is organ donation from a donor whose cardiopulmonary function came to a permanent end and who expired after intentional withdrawal of life support.
