To compare outcomes in transplants using DCD and DBD (donation following brain death), a propensity match was performed on 973 patients with chronic liver disease and/or malignancy who underwent primary whole liver transplant between 2004 and 2014 at University Hospital Birmingham. Primary endpoints were overall graft and patient survival. Secondary endpoints included post-operative, biliary and vascular complications. Over 10 years, 234 transplants were carried out using DCD grafts. Of the 187 matched DCD's, 82.9% were classified as {"}marginal{"} as per British Transplant Society Guidelines. Kaplan-Meier analysis of graft and patient survival found no significant differences for either outcome between the paired DCD and DBD patients (p=0.162 and 0.519 respectively). AST was significantly higher in DCD recipients until 48 hours posttransplant (p<0.001). The incidences of acute kidney injury and ischemic cholangiopathy were greater in DCD recipients (32.6% vs. 15% [p<0.001] and 9.1% vs. 1.1% [p<0.001] respectively). With appropriate recipient selection, the use of DCD's, including those deemed marginal, can be used safely and produce outcomes comparable to those seen when using DBD grafts in similar recipients.
