BACKGROUND High-molecular-weight (HMW) von Willebrand factor (vWF) multimers are crucial for primary hemostasis. Increased shear stress from ventricular assist devices can provoke premature degradation of HMW vWF multimers. Whether similar loss of vWF multimers occurs during extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) is not clear. METHODS We conducted a(More)

OBJECTIVE Patients requiring extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) have a well-known bleeding risk and the potential for experiencing possibly fatal thromboembolic complications. Risk factors and predictors of transfusion requirements during ECMO support remain uncertain. The authors hypothesized that compromised organ function immediately before ECMO(More)
