Case description

Surgical video case: unilateral lung transplantation with antrolateral thoracotomy in  this video i show you how to do it. Lung transplantation is a surgical procedure in which a diseased or failing lung is replaced with a healthy lung from a donor. It is typically considered as a treatment option for individuals with end-stage lung disease, such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF), cystic fibrosis, or pulmonary hypertension, among others. The procedure can improve the patient's quality of life and increase their life expectancy. However, lung transplantation is a complex procedure with risks and challenges, including the need for lifelong immunosuppressive medication to prevent rejection of the transplanted lung. It also requires careful evaluation of both the recipient and the donor to ensure compatibility and minimize complications.
