ABSTRACT
The article discusses a research in which survival after transplantation of one or two lungs in end-stage chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) in nearly 10,000 patients in the International Society for Heart and Lung Transplantation (ISHLT) registry was compared. Lung transplants are very limited in supply and therefore more concentration is needed for preventing the disease through smoking prevention programs and other conventional treatments beside lung volume reduction.
