Increasing Lung Transplant Availability Using Normothermic Ex Vivo Lung Perfusion (EVLP) at a Dedicated EVLP Facility
The objective of this study is to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of the CLES in enabling evaluation of potential donor lungs not otherwise used for transplant into subjects with end stage, survival-limiting lung disease in need of lung transplantation. This will be accomplished by evaluating subject survival at the later of 6 months or hospital discharge post-transplant.
