Abstract

Donation after circulatory death (DCD) is an evolving method for lung transplantation with potential for increasing the limited donor pool. Satisfactory outcomes have been reported from early experience with this technique. DCD lung procurement requires a systematic approach for efficient utilization of resources. It is important to minimize the ischemic time during lung procurement. We have presented our management protocol, surgical techniques used and results from the Alfred Hospital in Melbourne, Australia. © 2014 Elsevier Inc.
