Effects of the duration of bridge to lung transplantation with extracorporeal membrane oxygenation

Despite the severe illness, the BTT group showed favorable post-transplantation outcomes, particularly those bridged for less than 14 days, whereas the ST-BTT was not.

Extracorporeal membrane oxygenation as a bridge to lung transplantation: analysis of Korean organ transplantation registry (KOTRY) data

Short- and long-term post-transplant outcomes of bridge-ECMO patients were comparable to recipients who did not receive ECMO, and the use of ECMO as a bridge to lung transplantation did not significantly affect overall survival and graft function.

Extracorporeal membrane oxygenation as a bridge to lung transplantation in a Turkish lung transplantation program: our initial experience

The use of ECMO as a bridge to lung transplantation is an acceptable treatment option to reduce the number of deaths on the waiting list, but this approach still involves risks and complications.

Extracorporeal membrane oxygenation as a bridge vs. non‐bridging for lung transplantation: A systematic review and meta‐analysis

Non‐BTT is associated with better survival and fewer complications compared to BTT, and when ECMO may be the only option, the patient and medical team need to realize the increased risk of ECMO by complications and survival.

Extracorporeal membrane oxygenation support for lung transplantation: Initial experience in a single center in China and a literature review

Prophylactic intraoperative ECMO support and post-operatively ECMO prolongation demonstrated promising survival outcomes and acceptable complications in LTx patients and VV ECMO provided safe and effective support intraoperatively and prophylactically reduced the incidence of PGD in selected patients.

In cases where ECMO or mechanical ventilation is required due to unavoidable exacerbation in patients awaiting LTx, the application of awake ECMO performed by an appropriately trained ECMO multi-disciplinary team can be useful.

Extracorporeal membrane oxygenation in lung transplantation: Indications, techniques and results

The current evidence on the role of ECMO in the different phases of lung transplantation is assessed, while analyzing different studies on pre, intra- and post-operative utilization of this extracorporeal support.

Spontaneously Breathing Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation Support Provides the Optimal Bridge to Lung Transplantation

In patients with worsening pulmonary disease awaiting lung transplantation, those supported via ECMO with spontaneous breathing demonstrated improved survival compared with other bridging strategies.

Extracorporeal membrane oxygenation in awake patients as bridge to lung transplantation.

ECMO support in patients who are awake and nonintubated represents a promising bridging strategy, which should be further evaluated to determine its role in patients with end-stage lung disease awaiting LuTx.

Organ allocation waiting time during extracorporeal bridge to lung transplant affects outcomes.

The duration of the ECMO bridge is a relevant cofactor in the mortality and morbidity of critically ill patients awaiting organ allocation and the NIV strategy was associated with a less complicated clinical course after LTX.

The combination of MV and ECMO was a viable bridging strategy to lung transplantation that led to acceptable patient outcomes and there were no differences in duration of postoperative MV, hospital stay, graft survival, or the incidence of acute rejection, renal failure, bleeding requiring reoperation, or airway complications.
