A dedicated guide for physicians and organ procurement nurses meeting with the next of kin could be associated with a reduction in organ donation refusal rate, and in anxiety of profession...
The purpose of this research study is to compare the impact of the availability of biopsy results at the time of organ offers on the use and outcomes of kidneys from deceased donors.
This study is being performed so that tumor and blood samples from patients who will receive breast cancer treatment prior to surgery can be collected and stored for future research.
The investigators hypothesis is that a 22 gauge needle can yield core tissue, obviating the need to use the 19 gauge needle for core tissue procurement.
The purpose of this study is to determine the effect of a 5-minute video intervention regarding organ donation and transplantation on increasing the number of organ donor cards signed in N...
Standard operating rooms (SOR) are assumed to be the best place to prevent microbial contamination when performing tissue procurement. However, mobilizing an operating room is time and cost consuming ...
Abdominal organ transplantation faces several challenges: burnout, limited pipeline of future surgeons, changes in liver allocation potentially impacting organ procurement travel, and travel safety. T...
Renal biopsy is the gold standard for the diagnosis of both native and allograft renal diseases. We studied the impact of tissue procurement at bedside (TPB) omission on the adequacy of renal biopsies...
Efforts to expand the donor pool now routinely include donation after circulatory determination of death (DCDD). In the US, team members of the accepting liver transplant center (or a designated surge...
The organ transplantation enterprise is morally flawed. "Brain-dead" donors are the primary source of solid vital organs, and the transplantation enterprise emphasizes that such donors are dead before...
The chilling of a tissue or organ during decreased BLOOD perfusion or in the absence of blood supply. Cold ischemia time during ORGAN TRANSPLANTATION begins when the organ is cooled with a cold perfusion solution after ORGAN PROCUREMENT surgery, and ends after the tissue reaches physiological temperature during implantation procedures. WARM ISCHEMIA TIME starts then and ends with completion of SURGICAL ANASTOMOSIS.
The administrative procedures involved with acquiring TISSUES or organs for TRANSPLANTATION through various programs, systems, or organizations. These procedures include obtaining consent from TISSUE DONORS and arranging for transportation of donated tissues and organs, after TISSUE HARVESTING, to HOSPITALS for processing and transplantation.
A technique for maintenance or growth of animal organs in vitro. It refers to three-dimensional cultures of undisaggregated tissue retaining some or all of the histological features of the tissue in vivo. (Freshney, Culture of Animal Cells, 3d ed, p1)
Treatment process involving the injection of fluid into an organ or tissue.
The procedure of removing TISSUES, organs, or specimens from DONORS for reuse, such as TRANSPLANTATION.
