Abstract

Cardiopulmonary failure occurred in a 62-year-old patient a few hours after emergency cardiac retransplantation. Venoarterial extracorporeal membrane oxygenation was required to support biventricular dysfunction; thereafter, inhaled nitric oxide was given for residual hypoxemia and pulmonary hypertension. We report survival after venoarterial extracorporeal membrane oxygenation and inhaled nitric oxide treatment for both heart and lung failure in a heart recipient.
