Using the database of the Japan Organ Transplant Network, we investigated the actual state of organ donation after extracorporeal circulation cardiopulmonary resuscitation (ECPR) and the results of transplant recipients (survival rate of transplanted organs) for people who did not receive ECPR. I compared it with
Compared to the non-ECPR group, the ECPR group took a longer time to donate brain-dead organs, and although the survival rate of
transplanted lungs was lower, other organs were comparable.

◆Overview The shortage of organ donors is a serious problem worldwide. Extracorporeal cardiopulmonary resuscitation (ECPR), which attempts resuscitation using extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO), is an advanced cardiopulmonary resuscitation method for cardiac arrest, but even then, some patients die without recovery of brain function. A certain number exists.
A group led by Lecturer Tetsuya Yumoto and Professor Atsunori Nakao of the Department of Critical Care and Disaster Medicine, Faculty of Medicine, Dentistry and Pharmaceutical Sciences, National University Corporation Okayama University (Headquarters: Kita-ku, Okayama City, President: Yasutomo Nasu) , analyzed the database of the Japan Organ Transplant Network, a public interest incorporated association, and compared a group that underwent ECPR and a group that did not undergo ECPR for donors who had suffered even temporary cardiac arrest. As a result, although the period from presentation of organ donation options to brain-dead organ donation was significantly longer in the ECPR group, the results of transplant recipients (recipients) were similar except for the lungs. I found out something.
The results of transplanted lungs need to be further verified, but if ECPR is performed for cardiac arrest in the emergency room, but brain death occurs, the organ performance will be the same as if brain death occurred without ECPR. It was suggested that provision may also be an option.
The results of this research were published in the British scientific journal “Critical Care” on May 13, 2024, and released by Okayama University on June 3.
◆A word from lecturer Tetsuya Yumoto
We would like to express our respect to the patients and their families who have chosen to donate their organs, as well as to all the medical professionals who have been involved in emergency and transplant medicine, and to Nippon Organ for allowing us to use the extremely valuable data they have accumulated over the years. We would like to express our deepest gratitude to everyone involved, including everyone in the transplant network.
