Lung transplant rate in Europe 2017-2018, by country Austria had the highest rate of lung transplants in 2018, at 13.3 per million population. Belgium followed in 2018 with the second highest rate at 10.1 lung transplants per million, although this represents a fall from the 2017 rate. Switzerland had the largest rate increase between the years increasing from 3.8 to 4.9 per million population.
Reasons behind lung transplants

There may be two reasons explaining why Austria has the highest rate of lung transplants in Europe. Firstly, of the OECD countries in Europe, it has one of the highest rate of daily smokers at over 24 percent. Additionally, Austria had the highest hospital admissions for chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) in Europe at 286 admissions per 100,000 population.

Waiting for a lung transplant

Germany had the highest number of patients waiting for a lung transplant in Europe in 2018 with 799 individuals on the waiting list during the year, while 71 died on the waiting list for a lung transplant. In Austria, nine people requiring a lung transplant died during 2018.
