Lung transplantation of ventilator-dependent patients. The Washington University Lung Transplantation Group.

Chest 1992 January
During the last few years, lung transplantation has been extended to patients with a variety of end-stage lung diseases, but recipient selection guidelines have remained relatively strict. Ventilator-dependent patients have traditionally been considered poor candidates for transplantation. However, patients who have been thoroughly evaluated and accepted for transplantation and subsequently develop respiratory failure caused by progression and/or exacerbation of their underlying disease and recipients who experience respiratory failure caused by graft failure may be suitable candidates while ventilator-dependent if no other major complications or contraindications arise before a donor organ becomes available.
