Abstract

Backgrounds: Lung retransplantation (LRT) has become a recognized option for chronic lung graft failure. However, besides scarcity of organs or technical problems, retransplantation may be hazardous for patients on the waiting list (WL). In this study we analyzed the course of chronic lung graft failure in 5 patients and the ultimate evolution to death or LRT.
