Respiratory Support With Venovenous Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation During Stenting of Tracheobronchomalacia
Division of Cardiac Surgery, Johns Hopkins Medical Institutions, Baltimore, Maryland.The Annals of thoracic surgery (Impact Factor: 3.85). 11/2012; 94(5):1736-7. DOI: 10.1016/j.athoracsur.2012.03.016
A subset of patients with severe airway disease cannot be adequately supported with conventional mechanical ventilation during complex airway procedures. We report the successful respiratory support of a patient with severe tracheobronchomalacia with venovenous extracorporeal membrane oxygenation during rigid bronchoscopy with stent removal and stent placement.
