Effect of changes in postoperative spirometry on survival after lung transplantation
The Journal of Thoracic and Cardiovascular Surgery, 05/07/2012
Mason DP et al. – The results of the study have demonstrated the effect of changing lung function after lung transplantation on survival. Survival after single lung transplant proved more sensitive to declining pulmonary function, demonstrating an advantage of the increased pulmonary reserve provided by double lung transplant.
