In recent years, more lung transplantation centres have performed lung transplants in high risk patients, including patients with high lung allocation (LAS) scores, requiring mechanical ventilation, or extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) support pre-transplant. This review of the UNOS database identified that patients bridged to lung transplant with mechanical ventilation or ECMO had significantly worse short-term […]

Mechanical ventilation remains a strong relative contraindication to lung transplant in most centres.  Patients requiring ongoing mechanical ventilation prior to lung transplant are likely to receive a high Lung Allocation Score to reflect the higher urgency and worse expected outcome of lung transplant.  Analyzing adult lung transplants in the United States from 2005-2010 (LAS era) […]
