During the last decade lung transplantation became an accepted treatment option for end-stage lung disease of different origin. Technical problems of the early period have been solved completely during the course of time and the operation has found its place as a routine procedure. The shortage of donor lungs has stimulated the development of new operative techniques. Parallel to achievements in surgical treatment, significant progress in immunosuppressive therapy was obtained. Long-term survival following lung transplantation however remains limited by the onset of bronchiolitis obliterans syndrome. Since Vienna serves as a leading centre for lung transplantation in Middle-Europe, between 05/03/1996 and 17/01/2003 21 Hungarian patients underwent lung transplantation here. In close co-operation with the Vienna Lung Transplant Group, the Hungarian specialists prepare for introduction of lung transplantation in Hungary.
