Extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) is used as circulatory support or bridge to transplantation in patients with severe left ventricular (LV) dysfunction. Left heart decompression is needed to reduce pulmonary edema, prevent pulmonary hemorrhage, and reduce ventricular distention that may aid in recovery of function. We reviewed our experience from November 1993 to December 1997 with 10 patients having severe LV dysfunction (7 myocarditis, 3 dilated cardiomyopathy) who required… CONTINUE READING
