Four-year follow-up of body compostion in lung transplant patients

Published in Transplantation. 2003, vol. 75, no. 6, p. 821-8
Abstract Both undernutrition and overnutrition can affect the quality of life and survival of patients with pulmonary disease and lead to quantitative and functional alterations of fat-free mass (FFM). This longitudinal study determines the changes in weight, FFM, and body fat before and up to 4 years after lung transplant (LTR).
