Abstract

Shortly after SynCardia total artificial heart (TAH) implant, venovenous extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) via a 31 Fr Avalon cannula was used for profound hypoxic lung dysfunction. Immediately after starting ECMO, TAH flow increased by 1.5-2.0 L/min, presumably because of augmented TAH filling by the ECMO jet.
