Abstract

Lungs from brain dead (DBD) and donation after circulatory death (DCD) donors are very susceptible to acute injury often rendering them unusable. Ex-vivo lung perfusion (EVLP) has been proposed as a way of objectively assessing and reconditioning unusable donor lungs for clinical use. Data on conversion rates and clinical outcomes after EVLP reconditioned donor lungs are transplanted is very limited.
