Abstract

Background: Ex vivo perfusion is a safe and feasible method of assessing and using high-risk donor organs. Aim: We describe a case of successfully ex vivo treated and transplanted human lung allografts. Methods: Donor human lungs were assessed using ex vivo, our trouble shooting protocol allowed safe recovery. Results: We successfully implanted our ex vivo treated organs.
