How to Recondition Ex Vivo Initially Rejected Donor Lungs for Clinical Transplantation: Clinical Experience from Lund University Hospital
Schematic (a) and photograph (b) of the ex vivo lung reconditioning and evaluation system. The blood leaving the remaining dorsal part of the left atrium runs freely out into the box containing the lung. The pulmonary arterial pressure (PAP) is measured continuously. The left atrium pressure (LAP) is maintained at 0 mmHg. Blood gases are measured in the blood before and after the lung. The system is primed with STEEN solution and erythrocyte concentrate.
