  • RE: Inaccurate background regarding lung transplant rates
    • Lianne Singer, Medical Director, Lung Transplant Program, University Health Network, Toronto

    Exciting science which I hope will one day lead to improved access to lung transplantation. However the introduction to this paper incorrectly states that only 20% of patients who require lung transplants receive them. The paper cited for this statement shows that most patients listed for lung transplants in the US receive them, with 2/3 transplanted within one year after listing.
