First child lung transplant performed



The first child lung transplant surgery has been performed successfully in Hungary, doctors of the Semmelweis University and the National Oncology Institute announced in Budapest on Wednesday.

The 13-year-old girl named Dorka was put on the transplant list in a very poor state of health last year. The Semmelweis University and the National Oncology Institute performed the operation in co-operation on her in late March. The child is in rehabilitation.
