According to the Scientific Registry of Transplant Recipients, both transplant volume and survival among lung transplant recipients are improving over time. However, the outcomes of lung transplantation remain challenged by multiple thoracic and extrathoracic complications. With improving lung transplant survival, patients experience prolonged exposure to chronic immunosuppressive agents that can lead to multiple infectious and noninfectious complications. This article focuses on most common noninfectious complications with significant clinical impact.
