Lung transplantation in rats

Abstract

This chapter describes a unilateral, orthotopic lung transplantation (LTx) model using the cuff technique in rats. The advantage of this model over the suture technique includes a decrease in operation time, prevention of bleeding from the vascular anastomosis site, and shorter training period with stable outcomes. The rat LTx model has been proven valid for understanding physiological/pathological events occurring in lung grafts, as well as evaluating graft injuries due to inflammation or rejection, as seen in clinical lung transplant.& copy 2013 Nova Science Publishers, Inc.
