Dr. Ahmed Mostafa's report title was "Starting a Lung Transplantation Program in Egypt. Is it possible? "According to clinical cases, he indicated that an adult's lobe could be too big for children. But compensatory techniques can be used, such as single lobe transplantation with or without contralateral pneumonectomy, delayed chest closure, implanting middle lobe and so on.
