RATIONALE The role of pulmonary function before stem cell transplant as a potential risk factor for the development of early post-transplant respiratory failure and mortality is controversial. METHODS We conducted a retrospective analysis of the pretransplant pulmonary function of 2,852 patients who received their transplant between 1990 and 2001. MEASUREMENTS Pretransplant FEV(1), FVC, total lung capacity (TLC), diffusing capacity of carbon monoxide (DL(CO)), and the alveolar-arterial… CONTINUE READING
