A study on continuous low-flow perfusion with low-potassium dextran for donor isolated lung preservation.

Abstract

OBJECTIVE To test the validity of continuous low-flow perfusion with low-potassium dextran (LPD) to preserve rabbit lung. METHODS Isolated rabbit lungs were preserved for eight hours either in Ringer's solution by simple storage (Group I) or in continuous low-flow perfusion with LPD (Group II). After preservation, lung functions were assessed to compare… (More)
