Use of Pulmonoplegia and Delivery System During Recipient Surgery in Lung Transplantation

Brandon C Shade et al. Perfusion. .

Abstract

Lung transplantation in the United States has steadily grown over the last decade. Major attention has been with the understanding of lung ischemia-reperfusion injury and how it relates to primary graft dysfunction. In 2015, our institution implemented the use of a pulmonoplegia solution during recipient surgery of lung transplantation. A unique circuit utilizing the heart lung machine is used to deliver the pulmonoplegia solution. This system is considered to be a key contributing factor to the success of our lung transplant program.

Keywords: lung transplantation; organ transplantation; perfusion circuitry; perfusion technology; pulmonoplegia.
