Lung transplant donors and recipients are not matched by gender, although the effect of gender combinations on survival and complications post transplantation is not well studied.  This single-centre, retrospective review analyzed 249 adult lung transplant recipients for donor-recipient gender matching with a primary endpoint of mortality.  No effect of gender on mortality was observed with donor-recipient gender mismatches, up to 20 years post lung transplantation.
