Dr James Shapiro and colleagues from the University of Alberta, Edmonton, Canada, have recently completed a pilot study of the use of ex vivo normothermic machine preservation prior to liver transplantation using the OrganOx metra device.  They were the first centre in North America to transplant a liver following normothermic preservation on the metra device.  

Data from this trial have been submitted for publication.
