PH: UK’s Youngest Double-Lung Transplant Patient

Little Ollie Bannister suffered from Pulmonary Hypertension, where the heart has to work harder than normal to pump blood to the lungs, and struggled to develop as quickly as other children.

The brave youngster underwent the eight-hour lung transplant which saved his life when he was just three-years-old, in October 2013 at Great Ormond Street Hospital.

He was just two when he was diagnosed with the rare pulmonary hypertension in January 2013 after he had headaches, wheezy coughs and trouble breathing. The baby was rushed to Birmingham Children’s Hospital where concerned doctors spent two weeks doing tests.
