OUR EVLP PROCESS

Lung Bioengineering prides itself on offering a simplified EVLP service that relieves resource, time and financial burdens for its partners. Our process is broken down into 4 steps:

step 1

REFERRAL TO LBE FOR EVLP

Image 0 - Mobile

The transplant center assesses lungs to determine need for EVLP and calls 844-367-3857 to initiate referral.

Lung Bioengineering opens the case in our system. This step includes gathering detailed data about the donor lungs, the organ condition and reason for EVLP.

step 2

TRANSIT TO LBE FACILITY

Donor lungs are recovered and transported to our facility by air and/or ground medical transport. Logistics are arranged by the transplant center with Lung Bioengineering available to support as needed.

step 3

EVLP

Image 2 - Mobile

The lungs are cannulated and connected to the EVLP circuit. During EVLP, the lungs are warmed, ventilated and perfused for a maximum of 5 hours. Our EVLP Specialists perform a bronchoscopy, gas analysis and X-rays. This information is then used by the transplant physician to determine whether the lungs are fit for transplant.

If the transplant physician accepts the lungs for transplant, our EVLP Specialists cool down the lungs and prepare them for transportation.

LUNGS ARE ACCEPTED AND SENT TO TRANSPLANT CENTER

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

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.
