Current Issue Highlights

Cardiopulmonary exercise testing (CPET) provides prognostic information in cystic fibrosis (CF); however, its prognostic value for patients with advanced CF lung disease is unknown. The authors sought to determine the prognostic value of CPET on the risk of death or lung transplant (LTX) within 2 years.
MARCH 2024 AnnalsATS
The authors performed a retrospective analysis of chest computed tomography (CT), demographics, longitudinal pulmonary function, and transplantation-free survival among participants in the Pulmonary Fibrosis Foundation Patient Registry. The extent of lung fibrosis by quantitative CT is a strong predictor of physiologic progression and survival, independent of visually assessed CT pattern.
MARCH 2024 AnnalsATS
Severe cases of acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) may require prolonged (>28 d) extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO). In nonresolving disease, recovery is uncertain, and lung transplant may be proposed. This study aimed to identify the variables influencing survival and to describe the functional status of these patients at 6 months.
