Information for Referring Physicians

Children who are eligible for lung or heart-lung transplants have end-stage pulmonary or pulmonary vascular disease which has progressed to a point where there is limited life expectancy.

Timing of lung transplant is based on pulmonary function testing, cardiac catheterization as well as measures of overall health and well being.
