Abstract

This review investigates and summarizes the recent changes and advancements in heart and lung transplantation. Mechanical circulatory support and extracorporeal membrane oxygenation are increasingly used in the perioperative setting, and continuing research will evaluate their safety profiles. Optimizing and tailoring immunosuppression regimens for transplant recipients continue to be the subject of ongoing investigation.
