Abstract

Endobronchial stricture is not an uncommon complication following lung transplantation and may cause significant morbidity and mortality. We report our experience in a 36-year-old woman and a 39-year-old man who underwent lung transplantation and developed stenosis in the anastomotic area. Implantation of a silicone stent in 1 patient and an expandable metal stent in the other were successful. Both patients developed infections with Aspergillus fumigatus, 1 of whom died of fungal dissemination.
