Kalvin Lung, MD, MS,Thoracic SurgeryOur second guest today is Dr. Kalvin Lung,  Thoracic Surgeon at Northwestern Medicine.  Dr. Lung assists with COVID and non-COVID lung transplant procedures will discuss the importance of this technology and the strides being made in combating lung disease. Lung transplantation is the last resort for patients with end-stage lung disease. However, there is currently a global shortage of donated lungs which sadly results in deaths among patients on the waitlist. At the same time, many donated lungs are deemed unsuitable for transplantation and go unutilized. To help rescue potentially viable lungs – and those initially deemed “unacceptable” for transplant – the FDA has approved a device that flushes and oxygenates the donated lung once it’s outside of the body while washing it in a preservative. Nicknamed “lungs in a box,” the XVIVO perfusion system allows lungs to be ventilated and kept at body temperature for up to five hours, giving surgeons the opportunity to assess their suitability for transplant.
