The rapid growth of clinical pulmonary transplantation during the past decade has provided a wealth of information on the physiology of the lung allograft in humans. Routine measures of pulmonary function are remarkably normal many years after transplantation in uncomplicated cases[1]. Maximal exercise capacity, while reduced, is not limited by ventilatory factors[2]. While the overall physiology of the healthy transplanted lung is compatible with a normal functional status, numerous subtle abnormalities have been described (Table 1).
