Rarely has the cost of heart-lung transplantation received attention.
Although the procedure is still largely regarded as experimental, this does not diminish the significance of costs.
The National Cooperative Transplantation Study was undertaken to better understand the costs of all transplants, including heart-lung transplantation.
Data on transplantation charges from date of procedure to discharge were obtained from more than 65% of all heart-lung transplantation programs active in 1988.
These programs accounted for 61% of all transplantations performed in 1988.
Valid sample survey data (no more than 25 procedures per center) were obtained for 42 patients, or approximately 58% of all procedures done in the United States.
