Predictors of survival in restrictive chronic lung allograft dysfunction after lung transplantation KU Leuven
Chronic lung allograft dysfunction (CLAD) is the main factor limiting long-term survival after lung transplantation. Besides bronchiolitis obliterans syndrome, a restrictive phenotype of CLAD (rCLAD) exists, which is associated with poor prognosis after diagnosis. However, survival determinants for rCLAD remain to be elucidated. Our aim in this study was to establish parameters predicting survival in patients with rCLAD.
