Herein, we report a case of stent angioplasty for a kink in the pulmonary artery (PA) anastomosis soon after living-donor lobar lung transplantation (LDLLT). A 64-year-old man with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis underwent bilateral LDLLT with lung donations from his daughters. After reperfusion, the left PA anastomosis showed a kink, which could not be corrected completely during surgery. Due to the kink in the left PA, and the relatively small donor grafts, the patient required extracorporeal membrane oxygenation) after LDLLT. Approximately 24 hours after reperfusion, stent angioplasty was performed, resulting in the patient being successfully weaned from extracorporeal membrane oxygenation on postoperative day 4.
