In this operation a patient receives a heart and two lungs. This is generally performed for patients with congenital conditions or those in whom a lung condition has caused significant heart disease.
Bilateral lung transplant (BLT) is sometimes called double or sequential single lung transplant. In this operation a patient receives two lungs. This is the most common operation performed and is often the best option for patients with cystic fibrosis, bronchiectasis, emphysema (including that caused by alpha-1 antitrypsin deficiency) and pulmonary hypertensionBLT gives more lung reserve and has better long-term survival. However, it may not be suitable for all patients.
A double-lung transplant is a surgical procedure that involves removing diseased lungs and replacing them with two donated lungs. During the procedure, surgeons remove one lung at a time, attach the donor lungs to the airways and blood vessels, and perform the surgery in 8 to 12+ hours.
In this operation a patient receives one lung. This type of transplant is often carried out on patients with fibrotic lung disease.Single lung transplant (SLT) may be suitable for patients with a small chest where space is a consideration. In addition, there is more availability of single lungs so this option may be better if there is increased urgency for the transplant.
Lung cancer is one of the biggest types of cancer affecting both men and women. The level of severity depends upon the stage of lung cancer.
COPD, or Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease, is a chronic lung disease that primarily blocks the airflow to and from the lungs. In this health condition, the lungs are in an inflamed condition which causes significant difficulties in breathing, excess mucus, cough secretion, and other problems. If left untreated, COPD is a dangerous condition that can lead to severe heart troubles, lung cancer and other intense conditions.
Cystic fibrosis (CF) causes extreme damage to the lungs, digestive system, and other organs in the body. This inherited disease affects the cells that are responsible for producing mucus, sweat, and digestive juices. They cause defects in the gene, making the usually thin and slippery secretions sticky and thick. Therefore, instead of acting as lubricants, the secretions block the tubes, ducts, and passageways. Cystic fibrosis is a progressive disorder that requires daily care. With medical advancements, people often have a better quality of life as they can attend school and work than people with CF in older times.
Open surgery involves making a large incision down the chest wall and opening up the rib cage to access the lungs. It is a highly invasive procedure that will take several weeks or longer to recover f.. Continue Reading
