Organ Recovery Systems announce that, in February, the Belgian national perfusion service has reached its first huge milestone: 100 pumped kidneys. This service has been launched on October 1st last year by the national HMP implementation workgroup in collaboration with Organ Recovery Systems with the aim to facilitate the use of Hypothermic Machine Perfusion for high-risk kidneys.
Thanks to everyone’s effort, we are glad to announce that during the month of February, we have perfusedour 100th kidney on the LifePort Kidney Transporter. We would like to recognise the support of all Belgian transplant centers as well as the entire Belgian Transplant Society for making this possible. .
