Double Lung Transplant as a Result of Post COVID-19 Fibrosis

Presented on: Thursday, November 19, 2020

While the effect on those who have been infected with the COVID-19 has been varied, some patients have experienced devastating consequences. This predominantly respiratory virus has lead in some to pulmonary fibrosis, which has been so severe that Lung Transplantation has been the only option to allow patients the possibility of recovery. This Webinar will present an overview of COVID-19 and a case study of a patient who required lung transplantation for COVID-19 associated pulmonary fibrosis. The expert panel will discuss patient selection and evaluation, psychosocial implications of transplantation and the intense post-transplant care that the patient requires.
