    Looking for Bloodless Lung Transplant

    Hello. I am trying to locate a bloodless surgery program that would consider doing a bloodless lung transplant for a CF pt who is a Jehovah's Witness. I am writing from Canada and no centre in Canada will do a bloodless lung transplant that I am aware of. Other centres in the states I have investigated thus far indicate that while they do certain bloodless transplants, they do not do lungs.

    Does anyone have any idea of a centre which may consider it? If there is a possibility out there I want to make sure I find it for this young patient.

    Many thanks for any help you can offer.
    Pat, CF Social Worker
