Description & Objectives:

With a renewed interest in DCD donation fuelled by many innovations, the DCD Congress is a landmark and timely meeting for professionals where advancements in Donation after Circulatory Death (DCD) procedures will be discussed. Over two days, we will engage in constructive discussions on various crucial topics, exchanging insights and exploring new ideas:

  • DCD Then and Now: Reflecting on past achievements and envisioning future advancements
  • Regulatory Frameworks and Procedures: Applied to DCD worldwide
  • Criteria for Death Determination: Models for Implementing DCD Donation
  • Total and Functional Warm Ischemia Time: Definition and Clinical Implications
  • The Thoraco-Abdominal Perfusion Revolution in Controlled DCD
  • Donor Management Strategies: NRP (Normothermic Regional Perfusion) vs. other perfusion technologies, donor intervention strategies, and more


The DCD Congress is designed to offer participants a comprehensive learning experience:

  • Gain a profound understanding of the historical evolution of DCD and the field’s current state.
  • Explore and compare regulatory frameworks and procedures applied to DCD worldwide, fostering a global perspective on organ transplantation.
  • Examine and discuss organ perfusion techniques and explore their role in the context of DCD donation, ensuring you stay abreast of the latest technical innovations.
  • Delve into criteria for death determination and understand the challenges in implementing DCD donation, equipping you with strategic insights.
  • Understanding the definitions and clinical implications of warm ischemic times is crucial for enhancing patient outcomes.
  • Examine and discuss cutting-edge strategies for donor management and more.

We are also delighted to extend a special invitation to join us in paying tribute to our esteemed colleague, Paolo Muiesan whose pioneering contributions to DCD techniques and protocols have significantly impacted the field of transplantation. A special lecture will celebrate his legacy and inspire us to continue advancing the field.

The congress will culminate with the DCD Consensus, presenting preliminary consensus statements that focus on:

  • cDCD Pathway
  • Paediatric cDCD Pathway
  • NRP
  • Unified Concept of Death?

This represents a remarkable opportunity for us to collectively shape the future of the field, overcome challenges, and work towards a more unified approach to DCD organ transplantation.
