Several informative reviews of lung preservation have been published since the landmark review by Haverich and colleagues at Stanford in 1985[1]’[6]. The purpose of this chapter is to outline currently used techniques of lung preservation (including those of the authors), define controversies and options that exist for these methods, and briefly describe future prospects for improved preservation.
