Lung retransplantation remains the standard treatment of irreversible lung allograft failure. The most common indications for lung retransplantation are acute graft failure, chronic lung allograft dysfunction, and postoperative airway complications. Careful patient selection with regards to indications, anatomy, extrapulmonary organ dysfunction (specifically renal dysfunction), and immunologic consideration are of utmost importance. The conduct of the lung retransplantation operation is arduous with special considerations given to operative approach, type of surgery (single vs bilateral), use of extracorporeal circulatory support, and hematological management. Outcomes have improved significantly for most patients, nearing short and midterm outcomes of primary lung recipients in select cases.
