Use of thrombolytic therapy in DCD liver transplantation does not seem to improve outcome

Bart van Hoek, Lars Pietersen, Andries Erik Braat
With great interest we read the article by Bohorquez et al. “Safety and Outcomes in 100 Consecutive Donation After Circulatory Death Liver Transplants Using a Protocol That Includes Thrombolytic Therapy” (1). The authors compared 100 consecutive donation after circulatory death (DCD) liver transplantations (LT) using a protocol that includes thrombolytic therapy (late DCD group) to a historical DCD group (early DCD group) and a cohort of donation after brain death (DBD) LT. The primary objective of the study was to “present the experience with 100 consecutive DCD LT using a protocol that includes tissue plasminogen activator (tPA) administration”.
