Abstract

In France, the higher frequency of pulmonary sample in organ donors and the enhancement of surgical and perioperative life support techniques, have increased the number procedures and the short term prognosis of lung transplantation (LT). In this setting, the classical contraindications of LT need to be reconsidered. In this article, some of the classical contraindication of LT are confronted to the experience acquired in other solid organ transplantations or from some LT centers. Specific situations such as LT in patients with previous cancer, HIV infection, viral hepatitis, nutritional disorders, acutely ill LT candidates and aging candidates are addressed. Surgical contraindications are not reviewed.
