The only FDA approved device for both standard and expanded* criteria donor lungs for transplantation
Often referred to as a “Lung-in-a-Box”, the OCS Lung is a revolutionary system that preserves donor organs.
The OCS acts as a miniature intensive care unit that keeps organs alive and healthy by maintaining them in a natural state that mimics the human body
so that organs can remain viable for transplant along the way to recipients.
The Benefits of OCS Lung
INSPIRE TRIAL RESULTS
The OCS Lung is FDA approved for use with standard criteria donor lungs
Improved post-transplant outcomes compared to cold storage
~50% reduction of primary graft dysfunction (PGD) grade 3†
Significantly expanded organ retrieval range while limiting ischemic time
Reduction of PGD3 with OCS
†PGD3 in the first 72 hours is a severe form of acute lung injury that is a major cause of early morbidity and mortality encountered after lung transplantation. TransMedics OCS Lung significantly reduced PGD3 vs control group in the INSPIRE Trial.
Significant Reduction of PGD3 within 72 Hours
EXPAND TRIAL RESULTS
The OCS Lung is FDA approved for use with expanded* criteria donor lungs
87% successful usage of donor lungs on OCS that had been rejected for transplant by centers using cold storage
Over 91% patient survival 1 year post transplant
UNOS data showed donor lungs used for the OCS Lung EXPAND Trial had been declined for transplantation on average 35 times by other transplant centers before reaching an OCS transplant center.
20+ hours of cross-clamp time in a successful retrieval and transplant from Hawaii to North Carolina
*Expanded criteria is defined as donor lung pairs initially deemed unacceptable for procurement and transplantation based on limitations of cold static preservation.

How could you compare having the organ on ice over a long period of time versus treating it in the OCS Lung device that actually helps improve the tissue and is able to monitor the lung?
