Abstract
The lung allocation score (LAS) system has been implemented to reduce waiting list time and mortality in the USA, but it remains uncertain how the LAS would reflect the impairment in health-related quality of life (HRQOL), which is another lung transplantation treatment goal to be improved in addition to survival. We thus investigated the relationships of the LAS with mortality and HRQOL in Japanese lung transplantation candidates.
