A lung transplant involves removal of diseased lung and replacing it with a healthy lung, sourced from deceased donor. Lung transplant is considered as the last resort to survive in the patient with end-stage lung failure and highly diminished survival rates. The transplantation process involves one or two lungs and sometimes combined with the heart transplantation. The procedure is performed under general anesthesia.
During the procedure, the surgeon makes an incision in the center of the chest and opens the rib cage by performing sternotomy. A heart-lung bypass machine is connected which makes the blood circulate around your body. Your heart is then removed leaving behind a section of right and left atria. Then, the new heart is connected to the aorta and other main arteries. Once the new heart is able to pump the blood and is stable, then the heart-lung machine is removed. Finally, the incision is closed with suture and then covered with sterile dressing
