Abstract

Long-term survival post lung transplant is reduced significantly by Bronchiolitis Obliterans Syndrome. It is suggested that extra-esophageal reflux disease is a risk factor for Bronchiolitis Obliterans Syndrome and that antireflux surgery may be beneficial. However, practice between centers varies greatly. We suggest a need for improved evidence and standardization.
