Abstract

Between January 1989 and February 1993, 52 patients were evaluated at Niguarda Hospital for lung or heart and lung transplantation. Of the 35 that entered the waiting list, a total of 19 were transplanted (14 at other institutes before our surgical programme became operative, and 5 at our hospital). Recipient selection and evaluation criteria, and timing of transplantation in the different diseases are discussed.
