First “Warmed Liver” Transplant Takes Place in London via OrganOx.

The concept is simple: preserve the function of transplant organs after they are removed from a donor’s body.

The solution: keep the organs functioning as close to physiological conditions as possible.

The challenge: making the solution a reality.

The dynamic duo who made this happen, an engineer and surgeon spent 15 years creating the technologies necessary to get this to work and it would appear that the very first “warm” organ transplant is recovering well. The future outlook of this concept is encouraging.

This is another victory for innovation, science, and medicine.
