Lungs exposed to 1 hour warm ischemia without heparin before harvesting might be suitable candidates for transplantation.
Research output: Contribution to journal › Article
The limiting factor for lung transplantation is the lack of donor organs. The usage of lungs from donation after cardiac death (DCD) would dramatically increase donor availability. In the present paper we wanted to investigate lungs exposed to 1 h of warm ischemia without heparin followed by flush-perfusion and cold storage compared to lungs harvested from heart beating donors (HBD) using standard harvesting technique.
