A 38-year-old woman with Eisenmenger's syndrome underwent bilateral living-donor lobar lung transplantation and simultaneous closure of atrial septal defect. The grafts were a right lower lobe from her husband and a left lower lobe from her brother. Although only 2 lobes were implanted, the dramatic improvement in pulmonary hemodynamics has been well maintained for more than 5 years. Living-donor lobar lung transplantation and simultaneous cardiac repair may be one of the therapeutic options for patients with adult Eisenmenger's syndrome with simple congenital heart disease.
