Survival after cadaveric lung transplantation in recipients depended on ventilation support prior to transplantation has been reported to have relative high surgical mortality and morbidity rate. The objectives of this study were to describe the short-term outcomes of bilateral sequential lung transplantation under extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) support in a consecutive series of patients who depended on noninvasive and invasive ventilation support preoperatively .

Sampling Method:   Probability Sample
Study Population
Between July 2006 and July 2008, we performed bilateral sequential lung transplantation under venoarterious ECMO support in 10 respiratory failure patients with various lung diseases. This study wanted to report the preoperative condition, postoperative complications, and short-term outcome after lung transplantation.

Inclusion Criteria:

  • respiratory patients depended on ventilator supports prior to lung transplant

Exclusion Criteria:

  • non-cardaveric lung transplant
