A Call to Action in Thoracic Transplant Surgical Training.

Thoracic organ recovery and implantation is increasing in complexity. Simultaneously the logistic burden and associated cost is rising. An electronic survey distributed to the surgical directors of thoracic transplant programs in the United States indicated dissatisfaction amongst 72% of respondents with current procurement training and 85% of respondents favored a process for certification in thoracic organ transplantation. These responses highlight concerns for the current paradigm of training in thoracic transplantation. We discuss the implications of advancements in organ retrieval and implant for surgical training and propose that the thoracic transplant community might address the need through formalized training in procurement and certification in thoracic transplantation.
