Abstract

One of the most severe and frequent complication of pulmonary thromboendarterectomy is reperfusion pulmonary oedema. The only effective treatment for this complication is extracorporeal membrane oxygenation. A case of successful treatment of reperfusion pulmonary oedema with prolonged veno-arterial extracorporeal membrane oxygenation complicated by several episodes of bleeding and surgical site infection is presented.
