Abstract

In part I of this 2-part article on lung transplantation (Western Journal of Medicine 1996; 165:355-363), we reviewed the current indications and operative techniques of the procedure. In part II, we describe the postoperative management and results of lung transplantation. We also discuss current controversies, such as the use of marginal donors, living-related transplants, marginal recipients, and single-versus double-lung transplantation for emphysema or pulmonary hypertension.
