A Decrease in Hypoxic Pulmonary Vasoconstriction Correlates With Increased Inflammation During Extended Normothermic Ex Vivo Lung Perfusion.

Abstract

Normothermic ex vivo lung perfusion (EVLP) is an evolving technology to evaluate function of donor lungs to determine suitability for transplantation. We hypothesize that hypoxic pulmonary vasoconstriction (HPV) during EVLP will provide a more sensitive parameter of lung function to determine donor lung quality for lung transplantation. Eight porcine lungs… (More)
