Lung complications after hematopoietic cell transplant are common and often occur insidiously, leading to morbidity and mortality despite curing high-risk hematologic malignancies. This session will refresh attendees on the natural history of lung complications, update viewers on the safety of azithromycin after transplant, and highlight state-of-the-art advances in the detection of occult infections, novel thoracic imaging modalities, and cloud-based home spirometry platforms to detect and halt the progression of pulmonary diseases such as bronchiolitis obliterans. The session will conclude with cutting-edge treatments for steroid-refractory graft-versus-host disease of the lung, offering new options for those who care for patients with lung disease after hematopoietic transplant.
CME credits and/or Certificates of Completion are not provided for this session.
1- Better recognize and diagnose early lung complications after hematopoietic cell transplant, including bronchiolitis obliterans syndrome
2- Define new strategies to identify patients at high risk for developing lung complications after hematopoietic cell transplant
3- Integrate new options for the treatment of steroid-refractory lung disease after hematopoietic cell transplant
