Pulmonary Infarction After Liver Transplant and Previous Hepatopulmonary Syndrome
AbstractABSTRACT &NA; We describe the case of a 36‐year‐old woman with previous hepatopulmonary syndrome in which a focal pulmonary lesion developed after liver transplantation. Thoracoscopic resection showed a pulmonary infarction of the superior segment of the right lower lobe. The patient recovered and had no further thrombotic events after 2 years of follow‐up. The pulmonary vascular changes observed during hepatopulmonary syndrome may predispose patients to the development of pulmonary infarction.
