Summary of "Predictors of Outcomes After Thoracic Surgery in Orthotopic Liver Transplant Recipients with Pleural Disease."

Orthotopic liver transplant (OLT) recipients are at high risk for postoperative pulmonary complications. We aim to determine factors associated with morbidity and mortality in OLT recipients that required thoracic surgery for pleural space complications.
