Flat Chest of Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis Reversed by Lung
Transplantation: A Case Report
AbstractWe report a case of a severely underweight and flat chest woman with
idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis who was successfully treated with
cadaveric sequential bilateral lung transplantation. By the fourth
months after transplantation, we found three-dimensional CT volumetry is
a feasible way to evaluate postoperative thoracic cage change.
