Lung Transplantation Outcomes

Survival rates for lung transplant patients are tracked nationally by the Scientific Registry of Transplant Recipients. To help you understand these rates, keep in mind that other centers may have higher success rates because they don’t accept challenging transplant cases. Patients who come to Tampa General Hospital for a lung transplant often are high-risk, seriously ill patients.
