Pulmonary Considerations in Organ and Hematopoietic Stem Cell Transplantation, An Issue of Clinics in Chest Medicine
By Vivek Ahya, MD and Robert Kotloff, MD
This is a topic that is relevant to a wide audience of pulmonologists since transplant evaluation and care in increasingly shifting to the large community hospitals as well as the academic medical centers. While the narrow topic of lung transplantation has been previously covered, the broader topic discussed in this issue has not been covered by the Clinics in well over ten years.
