Understanding Thoracic Transplants

The goal in thoracic (or lung) transplantation is to reduce primary graft dysfunction, thereby ensuring successful outcomes. In this video, Dr. David Roe, Medical Director of Lung Transplant at Indiana University Health, discusses how lung transplants can be successful in patients with end stage disease. By implementing ex vivo lung perfusion and pulmonary rehabilitation more donors are available, quality of life is improved, and survival is increased. Outcomes research will help with understanding of how these effects lead to success.
