Advanced Lung Failure and Lung Transplantation

In advanced lung failure, when conventional treatments are insufficient, lung transplantation emerges as a transformative option for enhancing survival and quality of life. This intricate procedure involves replacing damaged lungs with healthy donor lungs, necessitating rigorous pre-transplant evaluations. Post-transplant care involves meticulous monitoring and immunosuppressive medications to prevent rejection. While lung transplantation offers renewed hope and improved prognosis, challenges such as potential complications and the need for lifelong immunosuppression underscore the importance of careful patient selection and comprehensive post-operative care. The decision to pursue lung transplantation requires a multidisciplinary approach, weighing the benefits against potential risks, and emphasizing individualized patient care.
