Early postoperative outcomes of lung transplant recipients with abdominal adverse events

Abstract: ntroduction Patients undergoing lung transplantation (LT) are at high risk of developing serious abdominal complications, which can lead to higher rates of morbidity and mortality. The aim of this study was to investigate the incidence and spectrum of these complications when they develop during the first 30 days after LT, as well as their possible association with possible risk factors. Methods A retrospective study of 552 patients undergoing LT between 01/02/2006 and 06/03/2021 was carried out. A descriptive and analytical evaluation of the patients who experienced complications and those who did not was performed comparatively. Data related to patient characteristics and the lung transplantation procedure were collected. Results Overall, 8.2% of patients developed severe abdominal complications during the first 30 days; paralytic ileus was the most frequent (31.1%), closely followed by visceral perforation (26.7%). The percentage of patients who required an invasive procedure to manage post-transplant complications was 57.8%. Surgical intervention was required in 39.8%. The variables that showed a significant relationship with the development of severe short-term abdominal complications in the univariate analysis were the time of surgery, the use of ECMO/ ECC and red blood cell transfusion during or after surgery. In the multivariate study, however, only duration of surgery remained significant (p=0.03). Conclusion The incidence of severe short-term abdominal complications after LT period was 8%. The commonest complications were paralytic ileus and intestinal perforation. Most patients did not require surgery. The only risk factor found associated with these complications was the duration of the surgical intervention
