Organ donation following brain stem death after ventricular assist device implantation



Organ donation following brain stem death after ventricular assist device implantation



Asian Cardiovascular and Thoracic Annals 22(3): 345-346



The availability of donor organs is the biggest limitation for lung transplantation, and a significant proportion of patients die on the waiting list. We describe a case of a 44-year-old lady who developed subarachnoid hemorrhage and cerebral edema on second postoperative day after left ventricular assist device implantation. She was declared brain stem dead 2 days later, and her organs were transplanted to suitable recipients on the waiting list for lung, liver and kidney transplantation.
