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.
