The mortality rate for individuals on the wait list for lung transplant is 15% to 25%, and still only 20% of lungs from multiorgan donors are used for lung transplant. The lung donor pool may be incre...
Ex vivo lung perfusion (EVLP) permits extended evaluation of donor lungs for transplant. However, the optimal EVLP duration of Lund protocol is unclear. Using human lungs rejected for clinical transp...
Outcomes after transplantation of lungs (LuTX) treated with Ex-Vivo Lung Perfusion (EVLP) are debated.
The advent of machine perfusion is deeply changing the field of liver transplantation (LT), unveiling a spectrum of unexplored possibilities, both with hypothermic and normorthermic perfusion. The ren...
Despite a huge range in lung size between species, there is little measured difference in the ability of the lung to provide a well-matched air flow (ventilation) to blood flow (perfusion) at the gas ...
This pilot clinical trial studies computed tomography (CT) perfusion imaging in predicting treatment response in patients with non-small cell lung cancer or tumors that have spread from th...
Ex vivo lung perfusion (EVLP) is an established strategy to evaluate and optimize high-risk donor lungs that would otherwise be rejected for transplantation mainly due to the presence of e...
Hypothermic machine perfusion (HMP) has been shown to be beneficial to preserve extended criteria donor (ECD) livers for transplantation. Normothermic machine perfusion (NMP) had the same ...
This is an experimental study of the feasibility and efficacy of CT perfusion (CTP) imaging (CT blood flow measurements) in subjects with non-small cell lung cancer.
The primary purpose of the study is to investigate the use of VRI to guide the selection of patients for lung surgery. Perfusion scintigraphy is the current method to assess the fractional...
Insurance providing benefits for the costs of care by a physician which can be comprehensive or limited to surgical expenses or for care provided only in the hospital. It is frequently called "regular medical expense" or "surgical expense".
The ratio of alveolar ventilation to simultaneous alveolar capillary blood flow in any part of the lung. (Stedman, 25th ed)
Hydrophilic contact lenses worn for an extended period or permanently.
Absence of air in the entire or part of a lung, such as an incompletely inflated neonate lung or a collapsed adult lung. Pulmonary atelectasis can be caused by airway obstruction, lung compression, fibrotic contraction, or other factors.
A diverse group of lung diseases that affect the lung parenchyma. They are characterized by an initial inflammation of PULMONARY ALVEOLI that extends to the interstitium and beyond leading to diffuse PULMONARY FIBROSIS. Interstitial lung diseases are classified by their etiology (known or unknown causes), and radiological-pathological features.
