20/11/2019, Delhi: A lung transplant is a surgical procedure of replacing a diseased or failing lung with a healthy lung, from a deceased or living donor. Being one of the most complicated organ transplantation, doctors suggest a lung transplant when no other medication or treatment works to keep the patient alive and healthy. Doctors recommend lung transplantation only when the patient has no other critical health issues apart from lung disease and there is no smoking, alcohol, or drug addiction.

Medical conditions, that can damage the lungs enough to require a transplant include, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, cystic fibrosis, emphysema, pulmonary fibrosis, pulmonary hypertension, and sarcoidosis.

Depending on the medical condition of the patient, a lung transplant may be conducted in three ways; replacement of one of the lungs, both of the lungs, or in some situations, the lungs and heart from the same donor.

A lung transplant is a major operation that can greatly improve the health and quality of life but also involves many complications.

A lung transplant is an open surgery and it takes time; a typical single-lung procedure can take 4 to 8 hours, whereas, a double-lung transplant can take up to 12 hours.
