Abstract

This report describes a recipient of single-lung transplantation surviving extraordinary complications: (1) early graft failure mandating retransplantation; (2) left atrial thrombus formation, which resolved by recombinant tissue plasminogen activator lysis; (3) and development of a "locked-in-syndrome." Possible underlying mechanisms are discussed.
