BACKGROUND A donor lung shortage prevents patients from receiving life-saving transplants. Ex-vivo lung perfusion (EVLP) is a viable means of expanding the donor pool by evaluating and potentially improving donor lung function. The metabolic and inflammatory effects of EVLP on human lung tissue are currently unknown. We sought to establish representative cytokine expression in human donor lungs meeting acceptable lung transplant criteria after prolonged normothermic EVLP. METHODS Seven single… CONTINUE READING
