|Title:||Post-traumatic ventricular septal defect: a rare indication for extracorporeal membrane oxygenation as a bridge to transplant.|
|Citation:||Cardiovasc Diagn Ther.2017 Feb;(7)1:85-88|
|Abstract:||A ventricular septal defect (VSD) is a rare complication of blunt chest trauma. This report presents the case of a 44-year-old man who developed a VSD as a result of high-energy closed chest trauma. We describe the initial surgical and medical management of the cardiac rupture. After failed repair surgery, extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) was used as a bridge to heart transplantation. We discuss the successful use of ECMO to improve the prognosis results in this rare and complex entity.|
