SESSION TITLE: Care of the Patient with IPF

SESSION TYPE: Original Investigation Slide

PRESENTED ON: Wednesday, October 26, 2016 at 08:45 AM - 10:00 AM

PURPOSE: Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) is a chronic, progressive fatal lung disease characterized by UIP pattern in chest high resolution CT scan and/or lung biopsy. Available therapies have not demonstrated a survival benefit. Patients with IPF are older and may have several comorbidities, however, the impact of these conditions on the prognosis of the disease has not been investigated. We aimed to examine the impact of comorbidities on survival among patients with IPF at a tertiary academic medical center. Our hypothesis was that patients with more comorbidities have shorter survival, independent of age and IPF severity.
