Abstract

Two single lung transplants from a single cadaveric donor were successfully conducted at 2 institutions on March 29, 2000, the first such procedure in Japan under newly introduced legislation. Our patient was a 48-year-old woman with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis who underwent left single-lung transplantation under cardiopulmonary support. The donor lung was preserved in 4 degrees C modified Euro-Collins solution. Total ischemic time was 5 hours and 37 minutes. The postoperative course was uneventful. The patient was discharged on postoperative day 62 with satisfactory respiratory function.
