BACKGROUND Panel-reactive antibody (PRA) is used to estimate the degree of humoral sensitization in the recipient before transplantation. Although pretransplant sensitization is associated with increased complications in other solid organ transplant recipients, less is known about the outcome of sensitized lung transplant recipients. Therefore, we sought to determine the impact of elevated pretransplant PRA on clinical outcomes after lung transplantation. METHODS The records of the first 200… CONTINUE READING
