Abstract

This report describes the clinical use of an extracorporeal membrane oxygenation system in a 23-year-old woman with severe pulmonary arterial hypertension due to end-stage systemic lupus erythematosus. The system was also used to provide a direct bridge from resuscitation to transplantation after acute onset of pulmonary crisis and maintenance of stable hemodynamics during the bilateral lung transplant, and also to provide optimal oxygenation until the transplanted lung recovered from severe primary graft dysfunction.
