Non-heart beating donors.

Nephrol. Dial. Transplant.. 2004 Jun;19 Suppl 3:iii26-31, PMID: 15192132

Several groups have demonstrated that non-heart beating donation is a viable source of organs for transplantation. However, the theoretically worse graft function and survival of the kidneys obtained from non-heart beating donors (NHBDs) is still a matter of debate that has led to consider them as marginal donors for kidney transplantation.
