RATIONALE Central airway stenosis (CAS) after lung transplantation has been attributed in part to chronic airway ischemia; however, little is known about the time course or significance of large airway hypoxia early after transplantation. OBJECTIVES To evaluate large airway oxygenation and hypoxic gene expression during the first month after lung transplantation and their relation to airway complications. METHODS Subjects who underwent lung transplantation underwent endobronchial tissue… CONTINUE READING
