Lung Transplants

Recommended Posts

Hi Jennifer,

 

I looked around the Sclero A to Z website for information for you. Here is one person's personal story about having diffuse scleroderma and a lung transplant. I also found this article on lung transplantion in scleroderma. It appears that the bottom line from this article is that patients with scleroderma who are recipients of lung transplantation experience similar rates of survival 2 years after the procedure compared with those with IPF or IPAH., and, therefor, lung transplantation may represent a viable therapeutic option to consider for patients with end-stage lung disease due to scleroderma.

 

I hope this is helpful.

 

Warm wishes,

Heidi
