Paper Abstract

A new method to estimate airway mucosa blood perfusion is proposed based on the fluorescein perfusion fluorometry principles, which allows both high temporal resolution and high sensitivity measurements to be performed. Preliminary results were obtained on different conditions of rat trachea vascularization, which provide interesting perspectives for an application to the bronchial ischemia problems in lung transplantation.
