The first report of lung transplantation dates back to 1906 and is due to A. Carrel and C. Guthrie who performed a heterotopic heart-lung transplant in the cat. However, it was not until 1950 that Iuvenelles and Metras proved in an autotransplantation model in the dog that lung transplantation was technically feasible. It is noteworthy that these authors employed atrial instead of single pulmonary vein anastomosis as well as bronchial artery revascularization.
