Abstract

Extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) is an accepted form of therapy in the treatment of neonates with otherwise lethal persistent pulmonary hypertension related to meconium aspiration, congenital diaphragmatic hernia, and sepsis. This report concerns two neonates with congenital cystic lesions of the lung who developed severe pulmonary hypertension and were salvaged with lobectomy and ECMO. These cases present an additional group of patients in whom ECMO may be a life-saving measure.
