Venoarterial extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) use as a bridge to transplant is extremely infrequent in adults. We investigated patient outcomes of the use of ECMO as bridge to transplant.

Extracorporeal membrane oxygenation is a technique indicated in cases of severe respiratory failure or in situations where pump failure or heart failure is refractory to conventional medical treatment...
To evaluate the effect of extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) as a bridge to lung transplantation (LTx).
Extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) has become a routine method in thoracic surgery. Recent developments in lung transplantation have led to its widespread acceptance. Firstly, ECMO is increasi...
The hybrid stage 1 palliation for hypoplastic left heart syndrome (HLHS) was first described in 1993 as a bridge to heart transplant for HLHS. There are limited data on this strategy as primary heart ...
Temporary mechanical circulatory support (MCS) can be a bridge to decision for patients in severe cardiogenic shock who may be eligible for durable support or transplantation. Outcomes with Impella mi...
Our primary aim is to describe platelet function in adult patients treated with extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO). A clarification of the platelet function in these critically ill...
Cardiogenic shock is an uncommun pathology with a high mortatily rate around 45%. Veno arterial extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (VA-ECMO) is a temporary extracorporeal assist device wh...
The objective of the study is to investigate the exposure difference between antibiotic studied patients in intensive care with Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation and patients without Ext...
The main purpose of the present study is to investigate the risk factors that affect drug pharmacokinetic (PK) during extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO). To advance understanding o...
This study seeks to determine if ECMO compared to cardiopulmonary bypass during lung transplantation has a beneficial effect on short-term outcomes after lung transplantation. We hypothesi...
A congenital heart defect characterized by the narrowing or complete absence of the opening between the RIGHT VENTRICLE and the PULMONARY ARTERY. Lacking a normal PULMONARY VALVE, unoxygenated blood in the right ventricle can not be effectively pumped into the lung for oxygenation. Clinical features include rapid breathing, CYANOSIS, right ventricle atrophy, and abnormal heart sounds (HEART MURMURS).
A cyclic octapeptide with a thioether bridge between the cystine and tryptophan. It inhibits RNA POLYMERASE II. Poisoning may require LIVER TRANSPLANTATION.
The transference of a heart from one human or animal to another.
The simultaneous, or near simultaneous, transference of heart and lungs from one human or animal to another.
Application of a life support system that circulates the blood through an oxygenating system, which may consist of a pump, a membrane oxygenator, and a heat exchanger. Examples of its use are to assist victims of smoke inhalation injury, respiratory failure, and cardiac failure.
Cardiology is a specialty of internal medicine. Cardiac electrophysiology : Study of the electrical properties and conduction diseases of the heart. Echocardiography : The use of ultrasound to study the mechanical function/physics of the h...
Organ transplantation is the moving of an organ from one body to another or from a donor site to another location on the patient's own body, for the purpose of replacing the recipient's damaged or absent organ. The emerging field of regenerative ...
