Two decades have passed since the first successful clinical lung transplant was performed in , and, in the interim, lung transplantation has become the preferred treatment option for a variety of end-stage pulmonary diseases. Remarkable progress has been made in the field through refinement of technique and improved understanding of transplant immunology and .   1 Introduction. Ischemia-reperfusion injury still remains a significant cause of early morbidity after pulmonary transplantation [1,2].Low potassium dextrane (LPD) solution has been increasingly used for pulmonary preservation in recent years, since experimental evidence was established over the last decade of the superiority of LPD solution as compared to other means of lung preservation.

pulmonary preservation. The purpose of this retrospective review was to define the incidence of IR injury after lung transplantation at our institution. Additionally, we hoped to better quanti-tate the morbidity and mortality associated with IR injury. Finally, we . University of Wisconsin and modified Euro-Collins solutions for pulmonary preservation were compared in a rat orthotopic left lung isotransplant model. Heart-lung blocks of donor rats were flushed with and preserved in one of the preservation solutions at 0 °C. After 6 or 12 hours of cold ischemia, the left lungs were transplanted into recipient rats and repcrfused for 1 hour.

  Currently, lung transplantation offers a realistic therapeutic option and has become an effective method for patients with end stage parenchymal or vascular pulmonary disease. Compared to initial results, the improved outcome is mainly related to optimised immunosuppression regimens and modified protocols for pulmonary preservation. Abstract. The short period of safe storage of pulmonary tissue is limiting the number of lungs transplants in current clinical practice. Standard procedure for solid organ storage involves flushing the lungs with an especially designed preservation solution followed by hypothermic storage in that same solution.

An appraisal of the literature ensued containing the aforementioned preservation solutions in the setting of cardiac and pulmonary transplantation. Available evidence supports UW solution as the preservation solution of choice for cardiac transplants with encouraging outcomes relative to notable contenders such as by: Lambert CJ, Jr, Egan TM.

The preservation of donor lungs for lung transplantation will be reviewed here. An overview of lung transplantation and discussions of donor evaluation and management, the lung transplantation procedure, early postoperative care, and primary graft dysfunction are provided separately.

Longer preservation times will lead to improved logistics, better patient management during the transplant process, and a broadened donor pool because of the ability to overcome geographic hurdles. Lung transplantation, like other forms of solid-organ transplantation, is limited by a scarcity of good donor organs.

It is estimated that less than 10% of all available multiorgan donors have lungs suitable for continued progress in organ transplantation, the demand for transplants and thus the need for organs have increased. Over 40 manuscripts and many book chapters have been written by UNC surgeons and physicians about topics such as operative techniques, post-transplant infections, post-transplant lymphoma, ischemic reperfusion injury, lung preservation, post-transplant osteoporosis, and chronic graft rejection.

Compared with initial results, the improved outcome is mainly related to optimized immunosuppression regimens and modified protocols for pulmonary preservation. Although lung transplantation has become a life-saving option for patients with end-stage lung disease, this intervention is hampered by a shortage of lungs in view of the growing number of people on the waiting list.

Lungs are retrieved from only a small percentage of multiorgan donors, and the transplantation and intensive-care communities have recognised the need to develop. The role of pulmonary preservation is to minimize ischemic effects by preserving the functional and morphological integrity of the lungs, thus improving function after transplantation.

The preservation method adopted by most centers is pulmonary artery perfusion with a preservation solution at 4°C due to the technical simplicity and efficacy. In the early stages after transplantation, pulmonary complications may prolong intubation time and increase the risk of systemic infectious complications.

Prolonged mechanical ventilation due to refractory respiratory failure is an extremely morbid event, as this event is a marker of poor recipient recovery, predisposes a recipient to long-term.

Background. Vasoconstriction after lung transplantation is a well-known phenomenon, but only limited information is available on blood flow distribution after ischemia and reperfusion. The aim of our study was to determine the regional flow characteristics in transplanted and native dog lungs after 24 hours of cold storage and preservation with Euro s.

At the University of Minnesota, University of Wisconsin (UW), modified Euro-Collins (MEC), and Marshall (M) solutions were compared as agents for pulmonary preservation in an isolated rabbit lung model. Normal saline (NS) was used as a control.

OBJECTIVE: Pulmonary preservation for transplantation is associated with ischemia reperfusion injury resulting in endothelial cell and surfactant dysfunction. The purpose of the study was to compare two extracellular type solutions, low potassium dextrane (LPD) and Celsior in their ability of ameliorating lung ischemia reperfusion injury.

This sign has been reported to be very specific for acute pulmonary embolism but with a sensitivity of only 19%[,].

Despite the many advantages of TEE, like every monitor, there are limitations and risks.This book has been superseded by a newer edition.

Since the first attempt at human lung transplantation (LTx) by Hardy in the early s, LTx has become an established treatment for a wide variety of end-stage cardiopulmonary diseases. Initially limited to patients with primary pulmonary hypertension or Eisenmenger’s complex, this procedure was extended to patients.
