A useful if somewhat belated account of the Papworth experience in lung donation after circulatory determined death (DCD) until 2015. There are no data on heart and lung transplants in that 6-year period. No DCD recipient required extracorporeal membrane oxygenation, and DCD single lung recipients did badly. Quite interesting to see that total ischemic time was not higher in DCD, as if its warm ischemic time was somewhat factored in the planning (eg, considering DCD donation from only short distances from Papworth Hospital).
