Lung transplantation is a treatment option for selected patients who are not responding to maximal medical therapy, or for whom no effective medical therapy exists. This book provides a comprehensive guide to the recent advances in lung transplantation, and includes coverage of donor selection, immunosuppression, infectious and noninfectious complications, and management of bronchiolitis obliterans syndrome and post-transplant lymphoproliferative disease emerging after lung transplantation.
