Kawasaki disease is usually a limited illness of early childhood. However, life-threatening cardiac manifestations can occur, either at acute presentation or as a consequence of coronary arterial involvement. We report the successful use of veno-arterial (VA) extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) for cardiac support in two children with Kawasaki disease: one with acute Kawasaki disease shock syndrome, the other with complications of coronary arteritis and subsequent surgery. We also reviewed the reported experience in the ELSO database and available literature...

Y D Fragoso, F G Elso, A Carrá
Improvement of multiple sclerosis (MS) diagnoses leads to earlier and correct disease management. The differential diagnostic workup for MS comprises a large variety of medical conditions. There are general guidelines and criteria for diagnosing MS worldwide, but awareness of regional differences needs to be kept in mind. Latin American patients who are screened for MS diagnoses may require an approach that is not exactly the same as that used for patients in North America, western Europe or Asia. In the present review, the conditions that are important for the differential diagnoses of MS in Latin America are reviewed...

Extracorporeal life support (ECLS) has been widely utilized to treat neonatal respiratory failure for two decades. However, its uptake in the case of adult respiratory failure has been slow because of a paucity of quality evidence and a sluggish tempo of ECLS-related technological advances. In recent years, interest in ECLS has been piqued after encouraging results were reported from its use during the 2009 H1N1 influenza pandemic. In a world constantly under threat from another influenza epidemic or deadly novel respiratory infection, e...

Monitoring brain integrity and neuro-cognitive function is a new and important target for the management of a patient treated with extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO), in particular because of the increasing awareness of cerebral abnormalities that may potentially occur in this setting. Continuous regular monitoring, as well as repeated assessment for cerebral complications has become an essential element of the ECMO patient management. Besides well-known complications, like bleeding, ischemic stroke, seizures, and brain hypoperfusion, other less defined yet relevant injury and clinical manifestations are increasingly reported and impacting on ECMO patient prognosis at short term...

Despite wide use and decades of experience, survival of congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH) patients treated with extra-corporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO), as reported by the extra-corporeal life support organization (ELSO), remains unchanged at 50%. High-survival rates both with and without utilizing ECMO have been reported, fueling questions about the utility of ECMO support in this difficult population. This review looks at data from the Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia Study Group and individual center reports, to evaluate the role of ECMO in CDH, focusing on defining the patients most likely to benefit, and discussing how those benefits can best be achieved...

PURPOSE: Extracorporeal life support (ECLS) is usually reserved for infants ≥34weeks estimated gestational age (EGA) owing to concerns about increased mortality and incidence of intracranial hemorrhage (ICH). We sought to characterize survival, rates of ICH, and complications in <34week EGA neonates placed on ECLS. METHODS: 752 neonates of EGA 29-34weeks were identified in the Extracorporeal Life Support Organization (ELSO) Registry (1976-2008). Data analyzed included birthweight, survival, pre-ECLS conditions, ventilatory parameters and complications (including ICH and other neurological outcomes)...

PURPOSE: It is currently unclear whether centrifugal pumps cause more hemolysis than roller pumps in extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) circuits. The aim of this study was to help answer that question in pediatric patients. METHODS: A limited deidentified data set was extracted from the international multicenter Extracorporeal Life Support Organization (ELSO) registry comprising all reported ECMO runs for patients 18years or younger between 2010 and 2015...

BACKGROUND: Veno-arterial extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (VA ECMO) is an effective rescue therapy for severe cardiorespiratory failure, but morbidity and mortality are high. We hypothesised that survival decreases with longer VA ECMO treatment. We examined the Extracorporeal Life Support Organization (ELSO) registry for a relationship between VA ECMO duration and in-hospital mortality, and covariates including indication for support. METHODS: All VA runs from the ELSO database from 2002 to 2012 were extracted...

BACKGROUND: In addition to severe hypoxia and hypercapnia, acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) can present with substantial hemodynamic compromise, requiring inotropic or vasopressor support or both. Either venovenous (VV) or venoarterial (VA) extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) can be offered in this situation. However, a contemporary comparison of these two cannulation strategies has yet to be well described. METHODS: The Extracorporeal Life Support Organization Registry was reviewed for all cases of adult ARDS in patients that required inotropic agents or vasopressors or both before ECMO initiation (2009 to 2013)...

The objective of this prospective study was to evaluate the patient-reported outcomes for patients with complex tibial fractures treated with a ring fixator. The secondary aim was to analyse the variables affecting patient-reported outcomes and time to union. Fifty-six patients participated in the study. The mean age at the time of fracture was 56.5 years (range 30-86). All fractures united during the study period. The ring fixator was removed at an average of 25.3 weeks (range 9-53). During treatment, the function and QOL increased with time...

BACKGROUND: Venoarterial extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (VA-ECMO) for refractory cardiogenic shock (RCS) is increasingly used in adult patients, but age represents a controversial factor in this setting. METHODS: Data from the Extracorporeal Life Support Organization registry was analyzed to assess in-hospital survival of elderly patients (≥70 years of age) undergoing VA-ECMO for RCS from 1992 to 2015. In-hospital survival and complications for elderly patients were compared with data in younger adults (≥18 to <70 years of age) supported with VA-ECMO during the same time period for similar indications...
