We report an infant with necrotizing pnuemonia and bilateral broncho pleural fistula, who failed on conventional and high frequency ventilation and was managed successfully on Veno-venous Extra Corporeal Membrane Oxygenator (V-V ECMO) with a unique configuration for 12 days, and weaned off successfully.

Congenital right pulmonary artery to left atrium fistula is rare cause of cyanosis. It is an abnormal fistulous connection between right pulmonary artery and left atrium representing a direct communic...
The indications for extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) are expanding. Postobstructive pulmonary edema, also known as negative pressure pulmonary edema, can result in severe respiratory comprom...
We describe a female infant with incontinentia pigmenti complicated by severe pulmonary arterial hypertension that was markedly improved by tadalafil administration. The infant was referred to our ins...
A pulmonary artery sling is formed when the left pulmonary artery originates from the right pulmonary artery and encircles the distal trachea, coursing between the trachea and esophagus to reach the h...
Pulmonary artery (PA) cannulation during peripheral venoarterial extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) has been shown to be effective either for indirect left ventricular (LV) unloading or to all...
ECMO(Extracorporeal membrane oxygenation) is being essential for cardiopulmonary failure patients. There are two types of ECMO, which is veno-veno (V-V) that can be used in respiratory fai...
This pilot study is designed to investigate the effect of inhaled nitric oxide on cardiac, pulmonary artery, and systemic hemodynamics at various time points during venoarterial extracorpo...
Cardiogenic shock, the most severe form of acute heart failure, is a critical situation where the body cells lack of oxygen because of cardiac dysfunction. The failure of pharmacological t...
This is a prospective, single center, safety and feasibility trial to evaluate the transplantation of the left atrium and pulmonary veins in patients with pulmonary vein stenosis. Consente...
In the investigators previous study (Ann Thorac Surg 2002, 73: 538-545), the investigators knew that for those adult patients receiving ECMO support for post-cardiotomy cardiogenic shock, ...
Placement of a balloon-tipped catheter into the pulmonary artery through the antecubital, subclavian, and sometimes the femoral vein. It is used to measure pulmonary artery pressure and pulmonary artery wedge pressure which reflects left atrial pressure and left ventricular end-diastolic pressure. The catheter is threaded into the right atrium, the balloon is inflated and the catheter follows the blood flow through the tricuspid valve into the right ventricle and out into the pulmonary artery.
A malformation of the heart in which the embryonic common PULMONARY VEIN was not incorporated into the LEFT ATRIUM leaving behind a perforated fibromuscular membrane bisecting the left atrium, a three-atrium heart. The opening between the two left atrium sections determines the degree of obstruction to pulmonary venous return, pulmonary venous and pulmonary arterial hypertension.
An anomalous pulmonary venous return in which the right PULMONARY VEIN is not connected to the LEFT ATRIUM but to the INFERIOR VENA CAVA. Scimitar syndrome is named for the crescent- or Turkish sword-like shadow in the chest radiography and is often associated with hypoplasia of the right lung and right pulmonary artery, and dextroposition of the heart.
Narrowing below the PULMONARY VALVE or well below it in the infundibuluar chamber where the pulmonary artery originates, usually caused by a defective VENTRICULAR SEPTUM or presence of fibrous tissues. It is characterized by restricted blood outflow from the RIGHT VENTRICLE into the PULMONARY ARTERY, exertional fatigue, DYSPNEA, and chest discomfort.
Diversion of the flow of blood from the entrance to the right atrium directly to the pulmonary arteries, avoiding the right atrium and right ventricle (Dorland, 28th ed). This a permanent procedure often performed to bypass a congenitally deformed right atrium or right ventricle.

Pneumonia (bronchopneumonia, lobar pneumonia and double pneumonia) is inflammation (swelling) of the tissue in one or both of your lungs. It is usually caused by an pneumococcal infection caused by bacteria called Streptococcus pneumoniae. However,...
