Venoarterial extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (VA ECMO) is widely used in patients with cardiogenic shock. Insufficient decompression of the left ventricle (LV) is considered a major factor preventing adequate LV recovery. A 40-year-old male was diagnosed with acute myocardial infarction, and revascularization was performed using percutaneous stenting.(More)
Primary cardiac lymphoma (PCL) is a rare cardiac tumor with poor prognosis. Palliative chemotherapy is still considered to be the standard management tool for PCL. A case of a 58-year-old man with a large right-heart tumor is presented. Echocardiography showed no abnormal findings except mild tricuspid stenosis with dynamic obstruction. To prevent sudden(More)
In refractory cardiogenic shock, veno-arterial extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) can be initiated. Although left heart decompression can be accomplished by insertion of a left atrial (LA) or left ventricular (LV) cannula using a percutaneous pigtail catheter, the venting flow rate according to catheter size and ECMO flow rate is unknown. We(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of this study was to identify risk factors associated with mortality in patients re-admitted to an intensive care unit (ICU) after initial recovery from major lung resection. METHODS We retrospectively reviewed the case records of all patients who underwent major lung resection between February 2011 and May 2013. A total of 1916(More)
Extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) has become one of the often applied mechanical support for acute cardiogenic shock. During venoarterial (VA) ECMO support, left heart decompression should be considered when left ventricular (LV) distension develops with pulmonary edema and LV dysfunction. The aim of this study was to report the results of(More)
Postpartum aortic intramural hematoma (IMH) is a rare but potentially lethal condition. We report a case of aortic IMH with massive hemothorax in a postpartum woman. The patient was a 31-year-old woman who had delivered twins by cesarean section. Two days after delivery, she complained of sudden-onset dyspnea. Chest computed tomography revealed a massive(More)
