Abstract

Abstract This is a case report about a 56-year-old female patient with primary pulmonary hypertension who underwent single, right lung transplantation. Five years post-operatively she developed signs of right heart failure. History and physical examination suggested pulmonary artery stenosis. Diagnosis was confirmed by pulmonary angiography. Percutaneous placement of a balloon expandable stent normalized pulmonary artery pressure.
