Successful Lobar Lung Transplant From a Marginal Deceased Donor With a History of Treated Pulmonary Tuberculosis: A Case Report

Metadata Downloads
Abstract
The shortage of available donor lungs is a continuing clinical problem. Lobar lung transplant and the extension of donor lung criteria may expand the pool of donor lungs. We here report a case of lobar lung transplant from a marginal deceased donor with bronchiectasis and fibrosis at the left upper lobe and a history of treated pulmonary tuberculosis. Our experience with this case suggests that a lobar lung transplant can be considered not only for size mismatches but also for use of locally damaged lungs. In addition, lungs from a donor who received treatment for pulmonary tuberculosis may be feasible for transplant with chemoprophylaxis for latent tuberculosis infection. Our current case indicates one possible option to overcome the persistent shortage of available donor lungs.
