Summary of "A prolonged and successful heparin-free extracorporeal membrane oxygenation run in isolated thoracic trauma: A case report."

A 21-year-old patient has been treated in emergency with venovenous extracorporeal membrane oxygenation after severe thoracic trauma causing severe air leak and haemothorax. The extracorporeal assistance was managed without heparin for 10 days till the full recovery of the lung, and no side-effect was recorded.

Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation: The New Jack-of-All-Trades?

The role of extracorporeal membrane oxygenation in the adult patient population still is evolving. Technologic advancements have improved the ability to provide extracorporeal life support. The miniat...

Microcirculation Evolution in Patients on Venoarterial Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation for Refractory Cardiogenic Shock.

Despite the increasing use of venoarterial extracorporeal membrane oxygenation to treat severe cardiogenic shock patients, microcirculation data in this context are scarce. We evaluated the venoarteri...

Extracorporeal membrane oxygenation: a literature review.

Extracorporeal membrane oxygenation is a modality of extracorporeal life support that allows for temporary support in pulmonary and/or cardiac failure refractory to conventional therapy. Since the fir...

Two-stage weaning strategy using veno-veno-arterial perfusion for patients on extracorporeal membrane oxygenation following cardiogenic shock.

Veno-arterial extracorporeal membrane oxygenation represents the last therapy option in refractory cardiogenic shock. Successful weaning becomes difficult if the myocardial function recovers but pulmo...

Successful sleeve resection of bronchial carcinoid under veno-venous ECMO.

Here, we report a case of a bronchial tumor in the proximal left mainstem bronchus in a 19-year-old male. Diagnosis of the tumor was typical carcinoid, which was established by bronchoscopic biopsy pr...

Safety and Efficacy of Bivalirudin Versus Heparin for Systemic Anticoagulation in Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation

This study will evaluate heparin as compared to bivalirudin for systemic anticoagulation in adult patients that require extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO). Half of the participants...

Antithrombin Supplementation in ECMO

Bleeding is the most feared complication during extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) and is associated with high dosing of heparin. There is no consensus on antithrombin (AT) supplem...

Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation Effect in Prolonged Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation

Analysis of the patients' data who were rescued with extracorporeal membrane oxygenation and without ECMO. The survival rate and the weaning rate were analyzed to see the effect of ECMO on...

Critically ill patients have a high risk of bleeding but also require prolonged intermittent dialysis. Thus, a heparin-free easy-to-use alternative type of anticoagulation within the dialy...

Bivalirudin vs Heparin in ECMO Patients

This is an open label, randomized study comparing the clinical outcomes of unfractionated Heparin and Bivalirudin for anticoagulation in adult subjects requiring ECMO support.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A heparin fraction with a mean molecular weight of 4500 daltons. It is isolated from porcine mucosal heparin and used as an antithrombotic agent. (From Merck Index, 11th ed)

A fractionated cell extract that maintains a biological function. A subcellular fraction isolated by ultracentrifugation or other separation techniques must first be isolated so that a process can be studied free from all of the complex side reactions that occur in a cell. The cell-free system is therefore widely used in cell biology. (From Alberts et al., Molecular Biology of the Cell, 2d ed, p166)

Clotting time of PLASMA mixed with a THROMBIN solution. It is a measure of the conversion of FIBRINOGEN to FIBRIN, which is prolonged by AFIBRINOGENEMIA, abnormal fibrinogen, or the presence of inhibitory substances, e.g., fibrin-fibrinogen degradation products, or HEPARIN. BATROXOBIN, a thrombin-like enzyme unaffected by the presence of heparin, may be used in place of thrombin.

Period after successful treatment in which there is no appearance of the symptoms or effects of the disease.

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.
