Abstract

The first successful lung transplantation was done in 1963 by James Hardy in the United States. The Vienna Lung Transplant program was launched in 1989 by Professor Walter Klepetko, and in 1996 lung transplantation became available in this center also for Hungarian patients. By 2013, conditions for full-scale Hungarian lung transplantation program were ripe. The Hungarian government invested 3 million Euros for infrastructural developments that made the operation and the perioperative care available. Besides funding, the professional training of medical personnel was also essential for this program to start. Hungarian specialists have had internship opportunities to study all aspects of lung transplantation at the Thoracic Surgery Department in Vienna. After successful preparations, the first lung transplantation in Hungary was performed on December 12, 2015.
