Lung ischaemia-reperfusion (I/R) injury remains a major cause of graft failure in lung transplantation (Tx). With the implementation of orthotopic lung Tx in mice, a physiological model on the base of a perfused and ventilated graft became available for the investigation of I/R injury. Using the scanning electron microscopy (SEM) technique, we here present an analysis of early and late morphological changes of pulmonary I/R injury. Syngeneic lungs were orthotopically transplanted between C57BL… CONTINUE READING
