Lung transplantation (LT) usually requires an optimal donor/ recipient size matching to guarantee satisfactory results. In patients of small dimensions or with reduced thoracic cage the waiting time to receive a standard organ may be greater than their life expectancy. Lobar reduction is an important surgical option for these subjects but it is so far underutilized.

Abstract

Lung transplantation (LT) usually requires an optimal donor/ recipient size matching to guarantee satisfactory results. In patients of small dimensions or with reduced thoracic cage the waiting time to receive a standard organ may be greater than their life expectancy. Lobar reduction is an important surgical option for these subjects but it is so far underutilized. In addition, lobar transplantation is suspected of high perioperative complications being technically demanding. This bicentric cohort study analyzed the impact of lobar lung transplantation on 1-year survival. Secondary end-point were common early and long-terms outcomes.
