Abstract

The shortage of donor pool for lung transplantation led to an increasing waiting list mortality, in particular in selected sub-groups of patients created by introduction of the Lung Allocation Score era. Several strategies have been proposed to overcome this scenario, one of them is lobar transplantation. The aim of this study was to compare early outcome of lobar lung transplantation vs. full lung transplantation in our center. Lobar lung transplantation has comparable early outcome with full lung transplantation. Our clinical experience confirmed lobar transplantation as a valid tool to shorten the waiting list in the Lung Allocation Score era, in particular for recipient with small chest cavities.
