Abstract: Machine perfusion has emerged as a tool to evaluate pretransplant graft function more objectively during preservation. Machine perfusion also offers the possibility to recondition questionable organs and to 'immunomodulate' allografts ex vivo. This article aims to review the current knowledge on machine perfusion of the various solid thoracic and abdominal organs, and to discuss the new possibility of conditioning and treating grafts with mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) during machine perfusion.
