Despite little is known about airway perfusion in the early period after lung transplantation, central bronchial stenosis is attributed to pour vascularization. Autofluorescence bronchoscopy was developed to discover preinvasive lesions, based on the fact that dysplasia shows less fluorescence than normal tissue when excited by blue light. Despite some questions about the origin of autofluorescence are left, the presence of good vascularization seems to be crucial. The aim of the present study was to evaluate the bronchial mucosa modification after lung transplantation by autofluorescence bronchoscopy.
