Microvascular changes in small airways predispose to obliterative bronchiolitis after lung transplantation.

Abstract

BACKGROUND There is strong evidence that obliterative bronchiolitis (OB) in lung transplant recipients is related to acute rejection as graded by parenchymal perivascular infiltrates. OB (chronic rejection) is a small airways, rather than a parenchymal, scarring process. Moreover, there has been no study of the microcirculation in the small airways in lung… (More)
