Abstract [en]

A 38-year-old man with progressive alveolitis secondary to polymyositis was treated for 52 days with venovenous and venoarterial extracorporeal membrane oxygenation as a bridge to bilateral lung transplantation. The patient survived, despite multiple complications, and is now back home with good pulmonary function. He is working part-time nearly 3 years post-transplant. This case shows that long-term extracorporeal lung assist is a viable but demanding alternative for bridging patients to pulmonary transplantation. This case also shows that right ventricular failure necessating conversion to veno-arterial assist does not necessarily predict right ventricular failure post-transplant.
