Ischemic airway complications after lung transplantation remain a significant problem despite the use of bronchial omentopexy. Clinical observations suggest that enhancement of vascular ingrowth could possibly increase the efficacy of a bronchial omental flap. This study was therefore designed to investigate whether basic fibroblast growth factor can enhance blood supply of an ischemic airway by acceleration of vascular ingrowth in a rabbit autotransplant model. Segments of the trachea were… CONTINUE READING
