Hypothermic oxygenated ex-situ machine perfusion (HOPE) is a dynamic preservation method that has been developed to reduce the incidence and severity of ischaemia-reperfusion injury and to improve outcomes after liver transplantation. We hypothesize that the application of ex-situ liver perfusion before LT in HCC recipients leads to an optimization of graft function, with a decrease in ischaemia-reperfusion injury and a possible decrease in tumour cell growth. We will plan a multicentre, prospective, two-arm, randomized, controlled, clinical trial; four Italian centres will be involved. We will enrol patients with HCC candidate to LT. The liver grafts will be randomized in two groups to compare HOPE and static cold storage (SCS) preservation before transplantation. For each group, we will evaluate clinical outcomes, graft function tests, histologic findings, perfusate, tumour characteristics, and recurrence.

Abstract

Hypothermic oxygenated ex-situ machine perfusion (HOPE) is a dynamic preservation method that has been developed to reduce the incidence and severity of ischaemia-reperfusion injury and to improve outcomes after liver transplantation. We hypothesize that the application of ex-situ liver perfusion before LT in HCC recipients leads to an optimization of graft function, with a decrease in ischaemia-reperfusion injury and a possible decrease in tumour cell growth. We will plan a multicentre, prospective, two-arm, randomized, controlled, clinical trial; four Italian centres will be involved. We will enrol patients with HCC candidate to LT. The liver grafts will be randomized in two groups to compare HOPE and static cold storage (SCS) preservation before transplantation. For each group, we will evaluate clinical outcomes, graft function tests, histologic findings, perfusate, tumour characteristics, and recurrence.
