Abstract: To maintain an adequate pulmonary function for alleviating the patients with respiratory distress by means of lung homotransplantation, this study was aimed as to whether improved surgical technique of lung transplantation could overcome immunologic handicaps by double or sequential lobe transplantations. In double lobe transplantation from indifferent two donors, this study drew the fact that when one lobe had been rejected, the other also became aggravated almost at the same time. On the other hand, in sequential lobe transplantation, the second lung grafts became aggravated in far shorter period after one lobe had been rejected. In conclusion, as to the reasons for early rejection of graft in double or sequential lobe transplantations it appears that immunologic hypersensitivity after a rejection of the first graft may play an important role in rejecting second double or sequential lung lobe grafts.
