What is a lung transplant?
Lung transplant is a surgical procedure that replaces one or both damaged lungs of a patient with healthy lungs from a deceased donor. This option is typically considered for individuals with advanced lung diseases like Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), Interstitial lung disease (ILD), Pulmonary Hypertension, or Cystic fibrosis when other medical and surgical treatments are ineffective.
Who is eligible for a lung transplant?
Eligibility for a lung transplant is determined through a comprehensive medical evaluation. Factors considered include overall health, lung function, and other medical conditions that could impact the success of the transplant.
How successful are lung transplants?
The success of a lung transplant depends on various factors, including the patient's overall health, the surgical procedure, post-operative care, and adherence to medications. Successful lung transplants can significantly improve the quality of life for recipients.
What is the process for getting a lung transplant?
The process involves medical evaluation, being placed on a waiting list, matching with a suitable donor, the surgical procedure itself, intensive post-transplant care, rehabilitation, long-term follow-up, and immunosuppression management.
