In this text book, the editors have tried to cover all the aspects of lung transplantation, from the selection and management of donors to patient selection, intraoperative management and postoperative course, including potential complications. We have also tried to open a window on the future, although future is already here; in fact the techniques of lung preservation, assessment, and reconditioning with machine perfusion are now becoming routine practice in many transplant centers, leaving hope for further development towards immunomodulation and regeneration of organs outside the body. The authors involved in each chapter are experts in their fields. They have performed a wonderful job fulfilling their task and giving the readers a comprehensive overview on lung transplantation nowadays and a good inspiration for further studies.
