Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Combined heart-lung transplantation has been a proven therapeutic option for patients with end-stage cardiopulmonary disease since 1981. Occasional patients are not candidates to receive both lungs en bloc. We describe such a case and propose indications and a surgical technique and present the limited published experience of combined heart-single-lung transplantation.
