This retrospective cohort study aimed to describe a single centre’s experience with bilateral lung transplantations in patients with previous lung volume reduction surgery. Five-year survival was not different between the cohorts, although the incidence of both post-operative bleeding requiring re-exploration and renal dysfunction requiring dialysis were higher in the lung volume reduction group. Post-transplant peak lung function was also lower in this cohort.
