There have been few studies that document the long-term outcomes of BPD survivors and information about the pulmonary function and radiographic findings of adult BPD are limited. Data on pathologic features of adult BPD are scarce. Three adult patients who underwent recent lung transplantation for BPD from 2 institutions were identified. Clinical data including clinical presentation, chest radiographic images, pulmonary function tests, cardiac catheterization, and echocardiography were retrieved from the electronic medical records. Hematoxylin and eosin and selective elastic stained sections of the explant lungs were examined.... More of this in The American Journal of Surgical Pathology Blog.
