OBJECTIVES Lung volume reduction surgery (LVRS) is accepted as a potential alternative therapy to lung transplantation (LTX) for selected patients. However, the possible impact of LVRS on a subsequent LTX has not been clearly elucidated so far. We therefore analyzed the course of 27 patients who underwent LVRS followed by LTX in our institution. METHODS Twenty-seven patients (11 male, 16 female, mean age 51.9+/-2.2 years) out of 119 patients who underwent LVRS between 1994 and 1999 underwent… CONTINUE READING
