abstract

  • Selected lung transplant candidates with significant CAD can undergo transplantation with equal mortality risk to those without CAD but are at a higher risk of non-fatal cardiovascular events. These data support the current practice of accepting a selected group of patients with CAD for lung transplantation and suggest that they should be monitored early and treated to prevent cardiovascular complications.
