Abstract

The American Transplant Congress 2021 was a virtual meeting and occurred between June 4 and June 9 through an online platform. We highlighted abstracts discussing machine perfusion preservation, a hot topic that may become the gold standard of organ preservation in the future. A total of 33 abstracts on organ machine preservation (3 for heart, 4 for lungs, 18 for liver, and 8 for kidneys) were presented at the meeting. We selected 23 abstracts that showed advances including new approaches to organ preservation, promising treatments and biomarkers, cellular therapy, and novel research areas. Here, we summarize the new developments concerning machine perfusion in both experimental and clinical studies.
