MELO T, JOEL et al. Results of lung transplant patients in emergency situation. Rev. chil. enferm. respir. [online]. 2015, vol.31, n.4, pp.195-200. ISSN 0717-7348.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0717-73482015000400003.

Introduction: In Chile, a number of criteria were agreed for emergency lung transplant in order to diminish the mortality of candidates on the waiting list. Objective: To evaluate short-term transplant patients in emergency condition. Methodology: Retrospective analysis of medical records of patients transplanted from January 2012 to July 2015 demographic data, underlying disease, early and late complication, and survival were recorded. Results: Out of 59 patients transplanted in this period, 18 have been in an emergency condition. Underlying pulmonary disease were: pulmonary fibrosis (n = 13), cystic fibrosis (n = 3), bronchiolitis obliterans (1) and pulmonary hypertension (1). The dependence of non invasive mechanical ventilation was the main reason for urgency (89%). 76% required intraoperative extracorporeal support. Survival at 30 days and 12 months was 94 and 87% respectively. Conclusion: Lung transplantation is a short-term emergency procedure with good results in survival.

Palabras clave : Lung transplant; emergency; survival.
