DCD livers have been seen to be an important additional source of organs for transplantation; nonetheless, they carry additional risk relative to standard DBD grafts. The first goal of this conference is to discuss both the opportunities and challenges of DCD liver transplantation.

Machine perfusion is a rising technique for ex situ preservation of liver allografts to help improve their quality and assess and even recover grafts that were previously discarded. The second goal of this conference is to evaluate the use and outcomes of the current machine perfusion techniques. We will also focus on the design of future clinical trials in liver perfusion.
