Lung allograft encounters changeable issues over the pre-and postransplant period. It is important to realize individual problems in each specific peritransplant stage and share the awareness between transplant team and patients. Long-sighted management policy is encouraged throughout posttransplant care because morbidities in each stage trigger each other and graft condition and management in acute posttransplant period have a considerable impact on long-term recipient survival after lung transplantation. The specific issues at hand are reviewed by going through the current important literature.
