A modified technique for insertion of dual lumen bicaval cannulae for venovenous extracorporeal membrane oxygenation.
Summary of "A modified technique for insertion of dual lumen bicaval cannulae for venovenous extracorporeal membrane oxygenation."
Venovenous extracorporeal membrane oxygenation is used increasingly in adults with severe acute reversible respiratory failure. Cannulation is associated with a risk of vascular damage or cardiac perforation. METHODS AND
This report describes a modified technique of insertion for dual lumen bicaval cannulae. We have adopted the technique on 25 occasions and had no incidence of vascular damage or cardiac perforation.
We suggest that the technique may mitigate the risk of guidewire looping during insertion of the dilators/cannula and thereby reduce the risk of perforation of the right ventricle.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
Food, Genetically Modified
Food derived from genetically modified organisms (ORGANISMS, GENETICALLY MODIFIED).
Organisms, Genetically Modified
Organisms whose GENOME has been changed by a GENETIC ENGINEERING technique.
A mutation named with the blend of insertion and deletion. It refers to a length difference between two ALLELES where it is unknowable if the difference was originally caused by a SEQUENCE INSERTION or by a SEQUENCE DELETION. If the number of nucleotides in the insertion/deletion is not divisible by three, and it occurs in a protein coding region, it is also a FRAMESHIFT MUTATION.
Dual Specificity Phosphatase 3
A dual specificity phosphatase subtype that plays a role in intracellular signal transduction by inactivating MITOGEN-ACTIVATED PROTEIN KINASES. It has specificity for EXTRACELLULAR SIGNAL-REGULATED MAP KINASES.
Dual Specificity Phosphatase 6
A dual specificity phosphatase subtype that plays a role in intracellular signal transduction by inactivating MITOGEN-ACTIVATED PROTEIN KINASES. It has specificity for EXTRACELLULAR SIGNAL-REGULATED MAP KINASES and is primarily localized to the CYTOSOL.
We conducted an epidemiologic survey in France on the use of bicaval dual-lumen cannulas for extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO). Every service that used the Avalon cannula was contacted. Pract...
