Abstract

Between January 1991 and September 1995 at the Thoracic Organ Transplantation Centre of Pavia, 193 patients entered the waiting list for heart-lung or lung transplantation. Indications for heart-lung transplantation (HLT) were mainly primary or secondary pulmonary vascular diseases. Parenchymal lung diseases were the most frequent reasons for single- (SLT) or double-lung (DLT) transplantation. During the same period, 21 patients underwent HLT, 16 SLT and 14 DLT. Early deaths (within 30 days of surgery) occurred in 2 (10%) HLT, in 3 (19%) SLT, and in 3 (21%) DLT. Nineteen (90%) patients with HLT, 11 (69%) with SLT, and 10 (71%) with DLT survived up to 3 months; and 11 (52%) patients with HLT, 8 (50%) with SLT, and 5 (36%) with DLT survived up to 12 months. At the time of writing, the following patients are still alive: 10 (48%) with HLT, after a mean ± SEM follow-up of 37.2 ± 6 (range 28-46) months, 12 (75%) with SLT, after a mean follow-up of 16 ± 11 (range 1-35) months, and finally 7 (50%) with DLT, after a mean follow-up of 14 ± 9 (range 1-23) months.
