OBJECTIVES Left ventricular distention can be recognized during the use of venoarterial extracorporeal membrane oxygenation as a key complication. Left ventricular decompression may decrease pulmonary pressure, minimize ventricular distention, and allow myocardial recovery. MATERIALS AND METHODS We applied venoarterial extracorporeal membrane oxygenation(More)
OBJECTIVES Acute kidney injury is a frequent complication after orthotopic cardiac transplant. We aimed to describe the risk factors for acute kidney injury after cardiac transplant according to Kidney Disease: Improving Global Outcomes criteria. MATERIALS AND METHODS We retrospectively studied a population-based cohort of cardiac transplant recipients(More)
Due to the increase in the number of patients waiting for heart transplantation and shortage of heart donors, both the use of mechanical assist devices and their associated complications increase. Here we present the case of a stenosis occurring in a patient at aortic outflow graft anastomosis for whom we applied a left ventricular assist device, followed(More)
Heart transplant is the only definitive treatment of end-stage heart failure. Venoarterial extracorporeal membrane oxygenation may be used as a bridge to heart transplant. Among 31 patients who underwent heart transplant between January 2014 and June 2016, we present our experiences with 3 patients who received venoarterial extracorporeal support as a(More)
