Abstract

Successful clinical double-lung transplantation after 5 1/2 hours of pulmonary ischemia is reported. Static hypothermic preservation with a high-volume, high flow rate-modified Collin's solution pulmonary artery flush was used. Excellent early and late pulmonary function demonstrates the efficacy of the technique that is described in detail. Lung transplantation remains limited by the lack of reliable methods of long-term storage of donor organs, but refinement of current techniques may soon allow its wider application.
