This single-center study analyses outcomes of living-donor lobar lung transplantations. Eight out of 38 patients who survived more than three months developed chronic lung allograft dysfunction (CLAD). Six of these eight patients had undergone bilateral transplantation. Unilateral CLAD was observed in three and bilateral CLAD developed in the other three patients.
