Patients who need a lung transplant are better off receiving organs from a deceased smoker than staying on the waiting list, British researchers reported. They will not live as long as those who get lungs from non-smokers, but they will outlive patients who stay on waiting lists, reported Dr. Robert Bonser of the University Hospitals Birmingham NHS Trust in Birmingham, England.

Their study showed that patients with diabetes as their PRD had slightly more than twice the risk of dying in the first 90 days after starting dialysis following graft loss as patients whose native kidney failure was caused by a diagnosis other than diabetes. Additionally, diabetes as PRD conferred an even higher risk of death between 90 days and three years. More
