Successful preoperative bridge with extracorporeal membrane oxygenation in three neonates with D-transposition of the great vessels and pulmonary hypertension

Abstract

Pulmonary hypertension with transposition of the great arteries is associated with significant morbidity and mortality. At the worst end of the spectrum are patients who undergo extracorporeal support perioperatively. We describe our experience with three patients who received preoperative extracorporeal support and separated from cardiopulmonary bypass successfully on conventional postoperative care, with no significant deficits on follow-up.
