A multicenter study on long-term outcomes after lung transplantation comparing donation after circulatory death and donation after brain death
from American Journal of Transplantation
The implementation of donation after circulatory death category 3 (DCD3) was one of the attempts to reduce the gap between supply and demand of donor lungs. In the Netherlands, the total number of potential lung donors was greatly increased by the availability of DCD3 lungs in addition to the initial standard usage of donation after brain death (DBD) lungs.
