Endurance training in COPD improves exercise capacity, and high intensity training may have greater physiologic benefits than lower-intensity exercises. Dyspnea and fatigue often limit patients with severe COPD from high-intensity exercises. This randomized trial compared 30 severe COPD patients awaiting lung transplantation assigned to high intensity interval training to 30 patients assigned to lower-impact continuous […]

The BODE index is widely used to predict risk of death in COPD, as well as in the referral and listing of patients with COPD for lung transplantation.  This cohort study examined the association of BODE index with health-related quality of life in advanced COPD.  For patients in the study who received lung transplantations, the […]

This retrospective case-control study assessed survival of patients with α1-anti-trypsin deficiency PiZZ and severe emphysema in Sweden between 1990 and 2010, comparing survival of those who underwent lung transplantation to those who were treated with usual medical care.  The transplanted group had a median survival of 11 years, as compared to median survival of 5 […]
