Abstract: Background. Brain death rapidly results in lung injury making many cadaveric donors unsuitable for lung transplantation. The aim of this study was to develop a porcine model of lung injury as a first step to study mechanisms to ameliorate the pretransplant graft quality during ex vivo perfusion.
