BACKGROUND The number of patients waiting lung transplantation greatly exceeds the supply of donors. This study was conducted to determine the effect of high-dose steroid administration on oxygenation and donor lung recovery after brain death. METHODS A retrospective analysis was conducted on 118 consecutive organ donors from January 1 through December 31, 1995. Eighty donors received high-dose steroids (methylprednisolone, mean 14.5+/-0.06 mg/kg) after organ procurement organization… CONTINUE READING
