Organs from DCD donors have a greater incidence of delayed graft function than organs from brain dead donors.

Such findings are not unusual in the early post-operative days. We routinely monitor elevated velocities as long as the waveforms show a strong systolic upstroke, there is no evidence of diastolic reversal of arterial flow, and there are no clinical findings to suggest vascular compromise.
