The purpose of this research study is to perfect the technique of EVLP and learn about the safety of transplanting lungs that have been ventilated (attached to a breathing machine or ventilator to deliver oxygen) and perfused with a lung perfusion solution (Steen solution™, made by Vitrolife). This ventilation and perfusion will be done outside the body (ex-vivo) in a modified cardiopulmonary bypass circuit (the kind of device used routinely during most heart surgeries). The purpose of performing ex-vivo lung perfusion and ventilation (EVLP) is to learn how well the lungs work, and whether they are likely safe to transplant.
