Abstract: Left lung transplantation accompanied by reestablishment of the circulation of the bronchial arteries by simultaneous transplantation of part of the aorta was performed on seven dogs. Mucosal circulation of the bronchi at the anastomosis was evaluated using laser Doppler velocimetry (LDV). Since the donor lung must maintain blood supply through the bronchial arteries, the donor aorta from its ascending portion to the descending portion below the outlet for the last bronchial artery was retained with the lung g… Show more

“…Occlusion of the revascularization probably was almost immediate in these cases. In studies of canine bronchial mucosal blood¯ow, up to 125% improvement was found after re-establishment of the bronchial artery¯ow (8). After human en bloc DLT with bronchial artery revascularization (9), airway mucosal blood perfusion was signi®cantly higher in the transplanted airways than in controls.…”

“…Both experimental and clinical studies have shown that successful bronchial artery revascularization supplies the transplanted airways with additional oxygenated blood, which can be con®rmed in LDF measurement (8,9). LDF has been used in assessing airway anastomotic healing after experimental lung transplantation (10).…”
