Abstract

Readmission to the ICU, which is common among lung transplant recipients, was associated with a high mortality. Sepsis was the main cause of ICU readmission and the most frequent cause of death. APACHE II score, need for mechanical ventilation, number of dysfunctional organs, and delay in ICU readmission were important prognostic factors.
