BENEFITS OF OUR CENTRALIZED EVLP SERVICE

Lung Bioengineering’s unique centralized EVLP service is the first of its kind.

Our model is designed to remove some of the resource burden experienced by transplant centers. We do this by providing centers with the support, tools and data required to make more informed decisions and improve patients’ chances of receiving a lung transplant.

1 ROBUST EXPERIENCE

COLLECTIVE EXPERIENCE OF OUR TEAM

100+ YEARS OF OUR CLINICAL TEAM EXPERIENCE IN DONATION, TRANSPLANTATION AND EVLP


QUALIFICATIONS

Our EVLP Specialists undergo extensive training, both in-house at our facilities and at Toronto General Hospital where the technology was pioneered.

2 FLEXIBILITY

OPTIMIZED DECISION MAKING

Extended preservation time provides transplant clinicians with additional opportunities to:

  • evaluate lung viability
  • ensure donor compatibility

while removing some of the resource burden on transplant center staff when lungs become available.


SINGLE OR DOUBLE LUNG EVLP

Our technology provides the ability to carry out double or single lung procedures.


IMPROVED PLANNING

EVLP allows flexibility in scheduling of transplant procedures for physicians and patients.


REDUCED TRAVEL

Utilizing LBE centralized service allows for assessment of lungs procured by other teams, ultimately decreasing dry runs by transplant centers’ explant teams.

3 TRUSTWORTHY DATA

REMOTE REAL-TIME DATA

The case management exchange (XMX) provides transplant physicians with real-time data that is viewable remotely from any location and on any mobile device (including cellphones and tablets).


ENHANCED INSIGHT & COMMUNICATION

Live video and continuous data sharing at your fingertips allows for real-time lung evaluation and assessment with EVLP Specialists.


CONSISTENT INFORMATION

Data, radiographs, and high definition video of the procedure including bronchoscopies are consistently captured and shared, an advantage which often isn’t available during lung evaluation in the donor ICU.


HISTORICAL REPOSITORY

Easy access to data, images, and video from previous cases in order to support learned decision making.


MEDICAL CONSULTANCY

Medical consultations are available during the procedure for peer-to-peer discussions.

4 EXPANDED DONOR POOL

IMPROVED CHANCES FOR PATIENTS TO RECEIVE A LUNG THROUGH:

ACCESS TO ADDITIONAL DONOR LUNGS

EVLP allows for consideration of lungs that once would have gone unused, such as those with limited or suspect functional data, or from more distant donor hospitals.


MULTIPLE EVLP PROCEDURE ROOMS

LBE has 2 centers with 3 devices, ensuring access to EVLP services 24/7/365.


UTILIZATION OF LUNGS FROM NON-TRADITIONAL CASES

  • Intraoperative referrals
  • DCDs
  • Double lung perfusion to single lung recipients
  • Other transplant center procurement teams
5 REDUCED COST & RESOURCE BURDEN

LBE SERVICE CHARGE

Lung Bioengineering only charges a flat fee per patient transplanted and covers reasonable transportation costs, minimizing financial risks for transplant centers.


REDUCTION OF RESOURCE BURDEN

Lung Bioengineering’s centralized EVLP model reduces the resource burdens experienced with in-house EVLP which include:

  • Costs of personnel, training and equipment
  • Technical issues that can occur during learning curve of training or in circumstances where EVLP technology is not regularly used
  • OR time
  • Expiring consumables inventory
6 RISK MANAGEMENT

REDUCED FINANCIAL RISK

Only cases that are transplanted are charged for, minimizing transplant centers’ risk of losing money on organs deemed not suitable for transplant following the EVLP procedure.


FACILITATION OF FURTHER EVALUATION

Lungs are assessed in an ex vivo environment which allows for the gathering of information that may not be available in the ICU and the OR. This means that lungs can be sent for further evaluation, even on short notice, and provides transplant physicians with greater confidence in their decision making.

POSSIBILITY OF REALLOCATION

Our model allows for the reallocation of lungs while on EVLP, maximizing the potential for lungs to go to transplant.

7 CONTINUOUS LOGISTICAL ASSISTANCE

CONTINUOUS EXPERT SUPPORT

LBE’s experienced EVLP Specialists understand the medical management of donor lungs, the allocation system, and transportation logistics and are on hand to offer support throughout the EVLP process.


BENEFICIAL FEEDBACK PROCESS

LBE’s feedback process can help to align center lung explant protocols, creating further consistency within the industry.
