Ex vivo normothermic perfusion (EVNP) score

EVNP score
Macroscopic appearancePoints
Excellent perfusion with global and even pink appearance1 point
Moderate perfusion with some areas of patchy or mottled perfusion2 points
Poor perfusion with a globally mottled and purple appearance3 points
Mean renal blood flow (mL/min/100 g) <50 mL/min/100 g1 point
Mean renal blood flow (mL/min/100 g) >50 mL/min/100 g0 point
Total urine output (mL) <43mL/hour1 point
Total urine output (mL) >43mL/hour0 point
  • Scores for macroscopic appearance, renal blood flow and urine output will be added to yield an overall assessment score ranging from 1 (the highest quality) to 5 (the lowest quality).
