Abstract

The expansion of the extra corporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) use and its indication is strikingly increased in the past few years. ECMO use expanded to lung transplantation, difficult general thoracic resections, transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) and LVAD implantation. Here we will discuss the indications and the outcomes of non-emergent use of ECMO.
