  1. Mean ± SD. In vivo data were obtained post thoracotomy immediately before lung explantation. Data of 2 and 12 h EVLP were obtained after 24 h cold ischemia and 2 and 12 h EVLP, respectively. Data of aEVLP and cEVLP groups were taken from [15]. OI did not differ significantly between groups (p = 0.912) or time points (p = 0.557). Cstat was not significantly different between groups (p = 0.549) but differed significantly between all 3 time points for EVLP groups (p = 0.004).
