Abstract
Background: Primary graft dysfunction (PGD) is an early complication of lung transplantation associated with poor early outcomes, however less is known about its prolonged effects on morbidity and mortality. We hypothesized that PGD is associated with long-term mortality and chronic rejection in the form of bronchiolitis obliterans syndrome. Methods: A retrospective study of 279 adult lung transplant recipients between 2000 and 2007 was performed. PGD grade was determined both immediately after transplantation (T0) and at 72 hours post-transplant (T72). Chronic rejection defined as stage 1 bronchiolitis obliterans syndrome (BOS), long-term mortality in 90-day su...
