Clin Chest Med. 1990 Jun;11(2):347-58.


Transplantation is now a treatment option in patients with end-stage pulmonary and pulmonary vascular disease. This article describes the outcome of single and double lung transplants performed by the Toronto Lung Transplant Group. Specifically reported are mortality, cause of death, pulmonary physiology, arterial blood gases, and exercise performance. Where possible, these results are compared with results of heart-lung transplantation from other centers.
