University of Wisconsin solution has been used successfully in clinical kidney and liver preservation. The object of this study was to determine if low-potassium UW (LPUW) solution could be applied to pulmonary preservation. Rabbit lungs were stored after hypothermic pulmonary artery (PA) flush with four different solutions (group 1: low-potassium dextran (LPD) solution, group 2: high-potassium UW (HPUW) solution, group 3: LPUW solution, group 4: modified Euro-Collins (E-C) solution). The lungs… CONTINUE READING
