Abstract

Complete obstruction of one or more of the major pulmonary veins after lung transplantation is a devastating complication. It results in hemorrhagic infarction of the affected lung within 4 to 6 hours, leading to irreversible lung damage. Reported treatments have included resection of the affected lobe and retransplantation.1,2 We present a case of pulmonary venous infarction after transplantation that was treated conservatively.
