Background: fragility fractures (FX) occur frequently after lung transplantation (TX), with a higher rate (15-20%) in the first two years, which decreases subsequently. Patients affected from cystic fibrosis (CF) seem to have a lower FX risk in the first two years after TX as compared with those affected with other lung diseases (nCF). The aim of our study is to evaluate and compare the long-term skeletal outcome in CF and nCF patients after TX.Methods: ...
