Yes. It is possible for two lungs from a single donor to be sent for EVLP en bloc at LBE facilities, separated and sent to intended recipients at two different transplant centers.
The EVLP fee paid to Lung Bioengineering includes all expenses from the time the organ gets on the ambulance at the donor hospital until it arrives at your transplant center. This includes the cost of getting the organ to the Lung Bioengineering facility (reasonable ground and air transport), cost of professional services related to the EVLP of the organ, all supplies, all laboratory testing, consultation with Lung Bioengineering’s EVLP consultants, and the cost of getting the organ to your transplant center if it is accepted for transplant (reasonable ground and air transport). The fee does not cover getting your recovery team to and from the procurement or the organ acquisition fee charged by the donor OPO.
The transplant center and/or OPO are in charge of arranging air and donor/transplant hospital local ground transportation and LBE is responsible for ground local transportation to and from the EVLP facility. If for whatever reason transportation arrangements cannot be made expeditiously, Lung Bioengineering is able to assist in air and ground transportation logistics. An EVLP Specialist contacts the appropriate transplant center personnel to ensure that lungs are imported and exported as quickly as possible. The air and/or ground transportation cost involved with the import of lungs to LBE facilities from the donor location are paid for by LBE regardless of EVLP outcome to transplant. Air and/or ground transportation cost for exporting lungs to an accepting transplant center are also paid by LBE. For reimbursement of transportation costs, LBE must be aware of the method of transportation in advance of any lung import/export activity, and the cost to be paid by LBE must be reasonable.
