A simplified preservation method for lungs donated after cardiac death.

Abstract

The shortage of donor lungs restricts the number of lung transplantations that can be performed. However, extension of the donor pool using organs donated after cardiac death (DCD) could potentially increase the number of patients who undergo transplantation. To establish acceptance among hospital personnel and the donor's next of kin for the uncontrolled DCD procedure we proposed a simplified preservation regime for intrapleural cooling of the donor lungs.
