Cor Pulmonale in the Context of Lung Transplantation: Prevalence, Predictors, and Outcomes.
Cor pulmonale is a condition characterized by right ventricular hypertrophy and failure caused by pulmonary hypertension. In the context of lung transplantation, cor pulmonale is an important consideration due to its prevalence and potential impact on outcomes. This review article aims to provide an overview of the prevalence, predictors, and outcomes of cor pulmonale in the context of lung transplantation. The review highlights the importance of pre-transplant evaluation, risk stratification, and management strategies to improve outcomes in patients with cor pulmonale undergoing lung transplantation.Author(s): William Melville
