Abstract

Heart, heart-lung, and lung transplantation play important roles in the therapy of certain patients with end-stage heart or lung disease. Complications are similar to other allografts, in many respects, but unique in terms of the degree of arteriopathy developing in heart transplant patients and bronchiolitis obliterans complicating transplanted lungs. Despite these difficulties and some limitations in organ function, recipients of these grafts generally enjoy remarkable rehabilitation.
