Abstract

Prompt controlled reperfusion of a pulmonary allograft in a sequential double lung transplant may correct cellular ischemia prior to exposure to full hydrostatic pressures and minimize organ dysfunction. We reviewed the process of a sequential double lung transplant and describe the technique of controlled antegrade graft reperfusion of the initial implant as performed at our institution.
