We report successful bilateral lung transplantation for end-stage suppurative lung disease after a previous right-sided pneumonectomy performed for a destroyed lung. Our results demonstrate the feasibility of the procedure even in the context of mechanical ventilation and extracorporeal artificial oxygenation. Posttransplantation follow-up revealed excellent gas exchanges, no airway complications, and well-functioning grafts with right-sided ventilation and perfusion of 37% and 22%, respectively.
