Abstract

In appropriately selected patients with COPD and alpha1-antitrypsin deficiency emphysema, lung transplantation prolongs life, improves functional capacity, and enhances quality of life. However, rejection remains an obstacle to better medium-term results, and lung transplantation is a treatment, not a cure and not a panacea.
