CURBELO, Pablo et al. Serious and consecutive airway complications after lung transplantation. Medicina (B. Aires) [online]. 2010, vol.70, n.4, pp.367-370. ISSN 0025-7680.

Airway complications are relatively frequent after lung transplantation and represent a great challenge to the medical team. In spite of the development of different modalities of bronchoscopic treatment and a lower incidence of complications with new surgical techniques, morbidity and mortality are still elevated. We present the case of a woman who underwent right lung transplantation who afterward developed four severe and consecutive airway complications that solved with a successful therapy approach.

Keywords : Lung transplantation; Airway complications; Interventional bronchoscopy.
