BACKGROUND: Pre-allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (aHSCT) and post-aHSCT lung function of 41 eligible patients at Riley Hospital for Children were assessed to identify risk factors for post-aHSCT morbidity and mortality.
OBSERVATIONS: One year post-aHSCT pulmonary function tests were significantly lower compared with baseline. These findings recovered at 2 years post-aHSCT. Refractory disease before aHSCT correlated with lower pulmonary function tests after aHSCT. Graft-versus-host disease was significantly associated with higher post-aHSCT residual volume. Importantly, low pre-aHSCT carbon monoxide diffusing capacity adjusted for hemoglobin and alveolar volume was predictive of death.
CONCLUSIONS: Among survivors, lung function improves over time after pediatric aHSCT. Measurement of carbon monoxide diffusing capacity adjusted for hemoglobin and alveolar volume before pediatric aHSCT should be further investigated as a predictor of pulmonary dysfunction and mortality.
