Sarah Murnaghan Case Prompts Permanent Lung Transplant Policy Tweak


Finally, one child has gotten an adult lung transplant since June 11. Although the OPTN isn’t naming names, the Murnaghan family has said that Sarah underwent the double-lung transplants from adult donors on June 12 and June 15.

“It’s not an enormous impact that will change adult lung transplant, but it is a significant impact,” Janet Murnaghan said. “Every life counts.”
