Sarah Murnaghan, 10, gets lung transplant

Help

A severely ill 10-year-old girl to whom a US judge granted a prime spot on the adult transplant list despite her youth has received a new set of lungs.

Sarah Murnaghan's family said they were "thrilled" the six-hour surgery to implant adult lungs went smoothly and that she had done "extremely well".

The family had challenged a US policy relegating under-12s to the bottom of the adult organ donation list.
