Abstract:
Lung transplantation is an accepted therapy for the treatment of end-stage respiratory failure. The vast majority of lungs for transplantation come from brain dead donors. There is evidence that lungs are injured by the process of brain death in the donor such that they do not satisfy standard acceptability criteria for organ recovery or they fail following implantation into the recipient.
