Purpose :Whereas native lung overinflation has been thought to happen in recipients of single lung transplantation for lymphangioleiomyomatosis because of its increased compliance, there is no study that has reported the details on the change of the native lung volume after single lung transplantation by three-dimensional computed tomography volumetry. The purpose of the present study was to evaluate the lung volume after single lung transplantation for lymphangioleiomyomatosis by three-dimensional computed tomography volumetry and investigate the correlation between the native lung volume change and postoperative pulmonary function. Methods: We retrospectively reviewed the data of 17 patients who underwent single lung transplantation for lymphangioleiomyomatosis. We defined the ratio of the native lung volume to total lung volume (N/T ratio) as an indicator of overinflation of the native lung. In order to assess changes in the N/T ratio over time, we calculated the rate of change in the N/T ratio which is standardized by the N/T ratio at 1 year after single lung transplantation: rate of change in N/T ratio (%) = {(N/T ratio at a certain year)/(N/T ratio at 1 year)- 1}× 100. Results: We investigated the correlations between the N/T ratio and the pulmonary function test parameters at 1 year and 5 years; however, there was no significant correlation between them. On the other hand, there was a significant negative correlation between the rate of change in the N/T ratio and that in forced expiratory volume in 1 second %predicted (%FEV1) at 5 years after single lung transplantation. Conclusion: The single lung transplantation recipients for lymphangioleiomyomatosis showed increased rate of change in the N/T ratio in the long-time course after lung transplantation with the decrease of %FEV1. We expect that these cases will probably cause the overinflation of the native lung in the future.
