Title

Aerosolized iloprost as a bridge to lung transplantation in a patient with cystic fibrosis and pulmonary hypertension

Abstract We describe a patient with cystic fibrosis, end-stage lung disease, and secondary pulmonary hypertension in whom aerosolized iloprost was effective in lowering pulmonary artery pressure and improving functional status, thus proving successful as a bridge to lung transplantation. Inhaled iloprost may be an efficient and selective approach to treat pulmonary hypertension related to end-stage obstructive pulmonary disease.
