A 10-year-old Pennsylvania girl who battled for an organ donation successfully underwent a double lung transplant Wednesday and her family said doctors were “pleased” at her progress and prognosis.
Sarah Murnaghan, who suffers from severe cystic fibrosis, received new lungs from an adult donor in surgery at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, spokeswoman Tracy Simon said.
The Murnaghan family said it was “thrilled” to share the news that Sarah was out of surgery.
“Her doctors are very pleased with both her progress during the procedure and her prognosis for recovery,” the family said in a statement.
During double-lung transplants, surgeons must open up the patient’s chest. Complications can include rejection of the new lungs and infection.
