Journal of Cardiothoracic Surgery Publishes 1st Case Report of Using Single-Site Cannulation ECMO to Treat SynCardia Total Artificial Heart Patient
Date:8/21/2013

Tucson, AZ (PRWEB) August 21, 2013

SynCardia Systems, Inc., manufacturer of the world's first and only FDA, Health Canada and CE (Europe) approved Total Artificial Heart, announced today that doctors at EJK Duisburg in Germany have published the first case report detailing use of single-site cannulation with extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) to successfully treat adult respiratory distress syndrome in a patient implanted with the SynCardia temporary Total Artificial Heart. The case report was published in the August issue of the Journal of Cardiothoracic Surgery.

Before the Total Artificial Heart implant, the 55-year-old patient was supported by veno-arterial ECMO due to refractory cardiogenic shock and severe respiratory failure. Once the Total Artificial Heart was implanted, the patient was weaned from extracorporeal circulation. However, due to pre-existing respiratory failure, doctors decided to implement veno-venous ECMO using a single-site bicaval dual-lumen catheter placed in the right internal jugular vein instead of conventional dual-site cannulation.

“In this context single-site veno-venous cannulation proved to have numerous advantages: it is simple to perform, it minimizes the risk of cannula dislodgement during patient care, reduces the risk of catheter related infections and finally allows early sternum closure,” according to the report written by Dr. Sotirios Spiliopoulos, surgeons Dr. Guenes Dogan and Dr. Dilek Guersoy, intensivist Dr. Maria Rosario Serrano and Prof. Reiner Koerfer and Prof. Gero Tenderich, the implanting surgeon.

“Single-site venous cannulation could be a reasonable alternative to
