EVLP Operating Room Footage
Footage from the operating room shows how the cardiothoracic and research teams "heal" donor lungs to make them acceptable for transplantation. The EVLP (ex vivo lung perfusion) clinical trial enabled surgical teams to improve donor lungs that may have otherwise been passed over for transplant. This technique could increase the number of lungs available in the donor pool, helping more patients in need of transplant get the new life they deserve.
