Cleveland Clinic Study: Using Lungs from Increased-Risk Donors Expands Donor Pool While Maintaining Current Survival Rates

Cleveland Clinic

Cleveland Clinic researchers have found that using lungs from donors who are considered high risk for certain infectious diseases compared to standard risk donors results in similar one-year survival for recipients. In addition, researchers saw no difference in rejection or graft (donor lung) survival after one year in patients receiving lungs from increased-risk donors. The study was published recently in the Journal of Thoracic and Cardiovascular Surgery.
