PURPOSE: The Lung Allocation Score (LAS) was introduced in May 2005 to allocate donor lungs to lung transplant (LTx) candidates ages 12 years and older on the basis of transplant urgency, while lung allocation for patients <12 years old remained dependent on waiting time. Effects of LAS implementation on outcomes in pediatric LTx candidates are unclear.
