Lung Transplantation in Pulmonary Hypertension Workstream

Back to Task Forces & IDDI Workstreams

The newest addition to the IDDI, this Workstream has hit the ground running! Since its inaugural meeting in June 2023, it has been addressing global access to transplant across different allocation systems and transplant programmes. 

The Workstream’s membership includes representatives from Belgium, Canada, Australia, and the United States. Together, they’ve identified the key issues in LTX using a Delphi consensus process that was presented at PVRI 2024 London. An update will be presented at WHSPA in summer 2024. The group has also produced two manuscripts on peri- and post-operative issues in transplantation. 

We’re particularly excited about their new project, which will help connect PAH centres with transplant programmes worldwide to ensure that PH patients have better access to transplants. They also hope to run a webinar series to include “Debunking the Myths of Lung Transplantation” and “Bridge to Transplant in Paediatric and Adult Patients.” 

The Workstream meets every month on the penultimate Friday at 13:30 BST.
