Celebrating more than 30 year since the first successful lung transplantation

In 1983, November 7, the world´s first successful single-lung transplant operation was performed at Toronto General Hospital by a team led by Dr. Joel Cooper. Dr Cooper and his surgical team at the University of Toronto performed The patient lived an active life for 6 years before passing away from kidney failure at the age of 64. Some years later Dr. Cooper also performed the world´s first successful clinical double lung transplants in St Louis, Missouri, USA.

Dr. Cooper, now also the Medical Advisor to XVIVO Perfusion, is an internationally recognized surgeon and scientist who has dedicated his time and work in experimental and clinical lung transplantation. He is known for his pioneering techniques and has received numerous honors and prestigious awards over the years. Dr. Cooper is member of editorial boards, author and coauthor of more than 400 peer-reviewed scientific articles. Besides lung transplantation, Dr Cooper’s main clinical interests include general thoracic surgery, lung volume reduction surgery for emphysema, myasthenia gravis, gastro esophageal reflux, and esophageal cancer.

Professor Dirk van Raemdonck

Meet Professor Van Raemdonck describing their early experience from EVLP.

UZ Leuven is the largest center in Belgium and number three in Europe.

The clinical lung transplant program started in 1991 and the center conducted studies using EVLP already in 2004.

In 2014 the number of lung transplants was approximately 100.
