Abstract

Some patients with severe post-cardiotomy ventricular dysfunction are unable to be separated from cardiopul monary bypass (CPB). In this setting, extracorporeal cir culatory support (ECS) should be instituted to obtain eventual myocardial recovery. We present a newborn in whom an ECS was established with the oxygenator used for the surgical correction.
