hypertrophic obstructive cardiomyopathy
|Issue Date:||24-Oct-2015||Source:||24(10):e153-6||Abstract:||As a salvage strategy, extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) permits the recovery of end-organ perfusion, whilst allowing the surgeon time for patient reassessment and surgical planning. We report upon the first known case in which VA ECMO was instituted as peri-operative supportive therapy for a young patient, in-extremis, with surgically correctable Chronic Thromboembolic Pulmonary Hypertension (CTEPH) and Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy (HOCM).||URI:||http://hdl.handle.net/11055/904||DOI:||10.1016/j.hlc.2015.04.174||Journal Title:||Heart, lung & circulation||Type:||Journal Article||Study/Trial:||Case Series and Case Reports|
