ISMETT Reaches 100th Lung Transplant Milestone

ISMETT, the Mediterranean Institute for Transplantation and Advanced Specialized Therapies, has performed its 100th lung transplant. This milestone is particularly noteworthy in light of the fact that ISMETT’s lung transplant program was started less than 7 years ago. In fact, ISMETT's first lung transplant was performed in June 2005. The outcomes of the lung transplant program equal those of the best transplant programs at an international level.
