Competing risk analyzing the impact of age on the development of bronchiolitis obliterans syndrome (BOS) and the risk of death after lung transplantation (LTx). Age had no impact on the development of BOS grade ≥ 2, but recipients 50 years or older had a 9% higher mortality 5 years post-transplant and a 16% increased risk 10 years post-transplant compared to recipients younger than 50 years (p < 0. 05)
