Cumulative incidence of bronchiolitis obliterans syndrome (BOS) and mortality after lung transplantation (LTx) group wise comparing cystic fibrosis (CF), alpha1-antitrypsine deficiency (AAT1) recipients, COPD-recipients and pulmonary hypertension (PH) recipients. CF recipients had a significantly higher risk of developing BOS grade ≥ 2 compared to AAT1 recipients (p < 0. 05), but AAT1 had a significantly higher mortality (p < 0. 05), indicating that CF recipients might withstand BOS better than AAT1 recipients. Recipients with CF and COPD had the same incidence of BOS grade ≥ 2 (p > 0. 05), but chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) recipients had a significantly higher mortality (p < 0. 05), indicating that CF recipients might withstand BOS better than COPD recipients. CF recipients had a significantly higher risk of developing BOS grade ≥ 2 compared to PH recipients. However, CF and PH recipients showed the same mortality, indicating that CF and PH recipients with BOS have the same chance of survival
