Reduced flow ex vivo lung perfusion to rehabilitate donation after cardiac death lungs
from Journal of Heart and Lung Transplantation
Current ex vivo lung perfusion protocols aim to achieve perfusion flows of 40 percent of cardiac output or more. Researchers hypothesized that a lower target flow rate during EVLP would improve graft function and decrease inflammation of donation after circulatory death lungs.
