Successful lung transplantation after donor lung reconditioning with urokinase in ex vivo lung perfusion system


Inci, Ilhan; Yamada, Yoshito; Hillinger, Sven; Jungraithmayr, Wolfgang; Trinkwitz, Michael; Weder, Walter (2014). Successful lung transplantation after donor lung reconditioning with urokinase in ex vivo lung perfusion system. Annals of Thoracic Surgery, 98(5):1837-1838.

Abstract

Acute pulmonary embolism is considered a contraindication to lung donation for transplantation as it might result in graft dysfunction. Ex vivo lung perfusion (EVLP) is a novel method to assess and recondition a questionable donor graft before transplantation. In this report we present a case of successful bilateral lung transplant after donor lung assessment and treatment with a fibrinolytic agent, urokinase, during EVLP.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
