Extended-criteria donors in lung transplantation in Switzerland: an evaluation of two adapted lung donor scores

Published inSwiss Medical Weekly, vol. 148, w14614
Publication date2018
Abstract

Various scoring systems aim to assess the quality of organs donated for transplantation on the basis of patient characteristics, clinical examination and laboratory results. How well such scoring systems reflect the practice in lung transplantation in Switzerland has never been studied. Therefore, we evaluated two scoring systems for their ability to predict whether or not donor lungs are accepted by the two Swiss lung transplant centres.
