Abstract

Airway complications after lung transplantation lead to significant morbidity and mortality, typically in the first two year. The pathogenesis of post-operative bronchial stenosis is associated to peri-anastomotic ischemia related to multiple and controversial risk factors. Moreover, a technique to predict the stenosis onset is still lacking. The auto-flourescence broncoscopy (AFB) is currently used in oncology: the different blood supply of healthymucosa from the pathological can identify precancerous lesions due to different capacity of absorption of ultraviolet light.
