Abstract: Although few biochemical data comparing adenosine triphosphate (ATP) catabolism or lactate production in isolated deflated versus inflated lung tissue are available, most transplant centers preserve their donor lungs inflated. We measured ATP level (using high-performance liquid chromatography), energy charge, and lactate level during 2 hours of normothermic ischemia in deflated lung tissue (n = 6), in lung tissue inflated with room air (n = 6), and in lung tissue inflated with 100% oxygen (n = 6). To determine the onset of anaerobic metabolism in lung tissue inflated with 100% O2, ATP and lactate levels were measured in another group (n = 6) during 8 hours of normothermic ischemia. Rabbit lungs were flushed in situ with a modified Krebs-Henseleit solution (60 mL/kg). They were isolated and immersed in 0.9% NaCl at 37 degrees C. In deflated lung tissue, ATP level (control value, 9.4 +/- 0.58 mumol/g dry wt) decreased and lactate level (control value, 5.6 +/- 1.16 mumol/g dry wt) increased after 15 minutes of ischemia (ATP, 5.2 +/- 0.86 mumol/g dry wt; lactate, 13.3 +/- 1.58 mumol/g dry wt). When the lung was stored inflated with room air, ATP breakdown and increase of lactate concentration only occurred after 90 minutes of normothermic ischemia (at 60 minutes: ATP, 8.0 +/- 0.58 mumol/g dry wt; lactate, 6.3 +/- 1.1 mumol/g dry wt). In lungs stored inflated with 100% O2, ATP breakdown and lactate accumulation only occurred after 5 hours of normothermic ischemia (at 4 hours: ATP, 8.1 +/- 0.74 mumol/g dry wt; lactate, 5.9 +/- 1.28 mumol/g dry wt).(ABSTRACT TRUNCATED AT 250 WORDS)
