Abstract

Outside of heart and lung transplantation, only few cases have been reported describing venoarterial extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (VA-ECMO) use in solid organ transplantation. We present a case of a staged combined heart-kidney transplant in which VA-ECMO was utilized after a complicated orthotopic heart transplantation to successfully complete the subsequent renal transplantation.
