Abstract

Abstract: Critical airway stenosis presents a challenge for surgeons and anesthesiologists alike in securing a reliable airway for adequate ventilation. The use of veno-venous (VV) extra-corporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) has been described as a strategy to provide adequate gas exchange in such instances. We present a case of a young female with a complex paratracheal mass significantly compressing the trachea in whom a planned intra-operative VV ECMO was instituted to allow safe oro-tracheal intubation of a double lumen endotracheal tube for lung isolation and tumor resection.
