INTRODUCTION Lung transplantation (LT) is a therapeutic option with controversial results in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). We aimed to analyze the outcomes of transplantation in terms of lung function and to identify prognostic factors. METHOD A retrospective analysis of 107 patients with COPD receiving lung transplants in the La Fe(More)
Endotracheal metastases (ETM) from non-lung cancer are seldom seen. Their main clinical symptoms are cough, haemoptysis and dyspnoea, although occasionally an incidental finding is made during a bronchoscopy. Breast, colon and kidney adenocarcinoma might be associated with ETM, lung cancer being the most frequent cause. Its finding is associated with(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE Survival studies of non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) are usually based on the Kaplan-Meier method. However, other factors not covered by this method may modify the observation of the event of interest. There are models of cumulative incidence (CI), that take into account these competing risks, enabling more accurate survival(More)
In lung transplantation, the presence of bronchogenic carcinoma in the native organ is uncommon, but doubtless affects patient survival, independently of the transplantation process itself. We describe 2 cases in which a primary tumor was found in the explanted lung--1 case of adenocarcinoma in a patient with pulmonary emphysema and 1 case of(More)
INTRODUCTION Lung transplantation (LT) has been considered an alternative therapeutic approach in terminal patients. However, this process in COPD is not controversy-free. This paper aimed to analyze 30-day mortality (PM) patterns and their risk factors in COPD patients undergoing LT. PATIENTS AND METHOD A retrospective cohort with 107 COPD patients,(More)
