Transplant and Pulmonary Hypertension
Information for Patients and Transplant Recipients
When you are no longer responding significantly to medical therapies, your physician may want to discuss the option of lung or heart-lung transplantation. Considering transplantation can be overwhelming, and the decision to get listed for transplantation is a very personal and unique process for every person. Transplantation offers a potential cure for PH, but also has the potential for significant complications.
When considering transplant, you may have questions about the process before transplant, the transplant procedure and post-transplant living. There are different issues to consider at each stage.
The pages below provide a comprehensive overview of the transplant process. If you would like to discuss your transplant questions and concerns with transplant recipients, PH patients considering transplant and caregivers of PH patients, join PHA's Transplant Email Group.
