OBJECTIVE Impaired surfactant activity may contribute to primary graft dysfunction after lung transplantation. We assessed the role of surfactant treatment in lung transplant recipients with severe life threatening primary lung graft dysfunction. PATIENTS AND METHODS Five patients after lung transplantation: 4 after single-lung transplantation, for emphysema (n=3) or idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (n=1), and 1 patient after double-lung transplantation for cystic fibrosis. All had severe life… CONTINUE READING
