Rationale: The role of pre- and post-lung transplant pulmonary rehabilitation is to maintain and improve exercise capacity, lung mechanics, peripherial- and respiratory muscle function. Aims: Follow-up the changes of functional and quality of life markers in pre- and post-transplant pulmonary rehabilitation. Materials and Methods: 28 patients (16 COPD FEV1:18±6 %pred, 7 IPF TLC: 46±11 %pred, 4 bronchiectasis FEV1: 28±4 %pred, alveolitis fibrotisans TLC: 31 %pred). participated in a pre- and 8 took part in a post-transplant rehabilitation program (primary diagnosis: 5 COPD, 3 IPF). The rehabilitation program consisted of chest wall-stretching, controlled breathing techniques and personalized exercises of 20-30 minutes by cycling and treadmill 2-3 times per day for 4

The rehabilitation program consisted of chest wall-stretching, controlled breathing techniques and personalized exercises of 20-30 minutes by cycling and treadmill 2-3 times per day for 4 weeks. Lung function, chest expansion (CE), 6 minutes walking distance (6MWD), modified Medical Research Council Dyspnea Scale (mMRC), COPD Assessment Test (CAT), breath holding time, grip strength were measured.Results: Pre-transplant pulmonary rehabilitation resulted significant improvement in CE (3,06±1,76 vs. 4,40±1,03 cm, p<0,05), CAT (21±6 vs. 16±6), breath holding time (18±9 vs. 30±15 sec), 6MWD (295±99 vs. 332±98m), p<0,05. FEV1, FVC, mMRC, grip strength did not change significantly. Post-transplant rehabilitation resulted significant improvement in CE (3,67±2,76 vs. 5,63±2,06 cm), CAT (17±7 vs. 8±4), breath holding time (26±6 vs. 42±16 sec), FEV1 (53±27 vs. 73±26 %pred) and FVC (56±21 vs. 73±21 %pred), p<0.05. The 6MWD, mMRC and grip strength did not change significantly.Conclusion: Our results underline the importance of perioperative pulmonary rehabilitation in the complex management of lung transplantation.
