Featured article: Double lung, unlike single lung transplantation might provide a protective effect on mortality and bronchiolitis obliterans syndrome
Mohammed Fakhro et al surveyed 278 patients who underwent lung transplantation. The researchers found that while Bronchiolitis obliterans syndrome (BOS) often limits survival rates following lung transplantation, double-lung transplant recipients showed a better chance of survival despite developing BOS compared to single-lung transplant recipients.
