Plastic bronchitis: resolution after heart transplantation.
Plastic bronchitis (PB) is a rare cause of obstructive airway disease in patients who have undergone partially corrective surgery for congenital heart disease (CHD). The etiology of plastic bronchitis in such patients is ill-defined, and treatment is ineffective. We report resolution of PB and severe obstructive airway disease after heart transplantation in a patient with CHD.
