Lung Transplantation to a Pediatric Case Diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis for the First Time in Turkey


In our Ankara City Hospital Lung Transplant Center, lung transplantation was performed for the first time in Turkey for a pediatric case diagnosed with cystic fibrosis. Zeynep Gülbade Türkaslan, 15, who has been living with cystic fibrosis for 15 years, regained her health with a successful operation.

Zeynep Gülbade Türkaslan, who is 15 years old and diagnosed with congenital cystic fibrosis, regained her health with the successful operation of our Ankara City Hospital Lung Transplantation Center after the suitable donor and lung were found. Selma Türkaslan, the mother of Zeynep Türkaslan, who had surgery on the second day of the Ramadan Feast, said that this situation gave them a double feast. Türkaslan, who has been waiting for donations for about a year and has been living on a ventilator, said that she was very happy after the operation and invited everyone to donate organs.
