Objectives: Donors after cardiac death (DCD) have increasingly provided organs for lung transplantation (LTx). The use of lungs from donors after euthanasia has not yet been reported. 
Potential Number of Organ Donors After Euthanasia in Belgium
TLDR
Organ donation after euthanasia involves patients whose request to undergo euthanasia has been granted and who voluntarily want to donate their organs after death, and organ donation is performed after circulatory death. Expand
Current status and further potential of lung donation after circulatory death
TLDR
From the currently reported results, controlled‐DCD lungs are an effective and safe method with good mid‐term and even long‐term survival outcomes comparable to donation after brain death (DBD); primary graft dysfunction and onset of chronic allograft dysfunction seem also comparable. Expand
Donation after circulatory death: the current state and technical approaches to organ procurement
TLDR
The DCD donor is defined and the current protocols in management of the DCD patient are described, and current techniques in organ procurement of the lung and abdominal organs are discussed. Expand
Extending Donor Pool with Donation after Cardiac Death in Kidney and Liver Transplantation:What is the Price to Pay?
TLDR
The establishment of a DCD program in this institution enlarged the donor pool and did not compromise the development of the DBD program, indicating DCD is a valuable source for abdominal organ transplantation. Expand
Ex Situ Perfusion of Hearts Donated After Euthanasia: A Promising Contribution to Heart Transplantation
TLDR
Hearts donated following euthanasia are highly valuable for research purposes and can have sufficient quality to be transplanted and can contribute to shortening the heart transplant waiting list. Expand
Lung donation after circulatory death.
TLDR
Based on the current short-term and long-term clinical results, it is believed that barriers for DCD utilization should be overcome, resulting in a safe implementation of more DCD LTx programs worldwide. Expand
Organ donation after medical assistance in dying or cessation of life-sustaining treatment requested by conscious patients: the Canadian context
TLDR
Ethical issues associated with controlled donation after cardiac death in conscious patients who choose to die are examined in relevant policies in other countries. Expand
Organ donation after euthanasia in children: Belgian and Dutch perspectives
TLDR
The legal aspects of euthanasia and organ donation are elaborated, after which the medical and ethical dilemmas of the combined procedure are addressed, followed by a comprehensive discussion of these aspects in children and adolescents. Expand
Categories of donation after cardiocirculatory death.
TLDR
The authors have presented herein an overview of the various DCD descriptions in the literature, and proposed an adapted DCD classification to better define the DCD processes, seeking to provide a better tool to compare the results of published reports and to improve current practices. Expand
Organ donation after euthanasia, morally acceptable under strict procedural safeguards
TLDR
This paper presents a case of organ donation after active euthanasia (ODE) in the Netherlands from a patient who had his life ended at his explicit and voluntary request and discusses several ethical issues such as who should broach the subject of organ donor and who should perform the euthanasia, and how a conflict of interest can be avoided.

The results of 4 patients transplanted with DCD organs, implementing a protocol of controlled organ retrieval (Maastricht Classification III), were reviewed, and there were no operative deaths. Expand

TLDR
The use of Maastricht category III lungs for human LTx is associated with acceptable early clinical outcomes, and the Alfred Hospital's early and intermediate outcomes following DCD donor LTx are described. Expand
Non-heart-beating donors.
TLDR
This review outlines the different categories of NHBDs, the relevant published experimental data that support the use of lungs coming from these donors and the clinical experience worldwide so far. Expand
Lung transplantation with donation after cardiac death donors: long-term follow-up in a single center.
TLDR
The data show that the long-term patient and graft survival rates after donation after cardiac death lung transplantation were equivalent to those after brain-dead donor Lung transplantation. Expand
Lung transplantation and donation after cardiac death: a single center experience.
TLDR
Early outcomes after DCD lung transplantations are somewhat inferior to those of series from other centers but approach national averages for conventional lung transplantation. Expand
Should lung transplantation be performed using donation after cardiac death? The United States experience.
TLDR
Concern about organ quality and ischemia-reperfusion injury has limited the application of lung DCD, however, DCD as practiced in the United States results in survival at least equivalent to that after brain death donation. Expand
Pulmonary Transplantation: the role of brain death in donor lung injury
TLDR
An understanding of the mechanism of donor lung injury could lead to the development of new treatment strategies for the donor to reduce lung injury, increase the number of donors with acceptable lungs, and improve the results of transplantation. Expand
Transplantation of lungs from a non-heart-beating donor
TLDR
The ethical acceptability of the study was gauged from the results of a broad information programme directed at the general public in Sweden, and from discussions with professionals including doctors, nurses, hospital chaplains, and judges. Expand
Results of clinical lung transplant from uncontrolled non-heart-beating donors.
TLDR
Mid-term results confirm the adequacy of uncontrolled NHBD as a promising complementary source of lung donors for clinical transplant. Expand
Organ procurement after euthanasia: Belgian experience.
TLDR
Between 2005 and 2007, 4 patients (3 in Antwerp and 1 in Liège) expressed their will for organ donation after their request for euthanasia was granted, and a clear separation between euthanasia request, the euthanasia procedure, and the organ procurement procedure is necessary. Expand
