ABSTRACT
The article presents a case study which involves a 21-year-old male patient that developed long-segment caval thrombus following the removal of his extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) support system. Topics discussed include the need of the patient for an ECMO due to his acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS), the ECMO removal after the patient showed improvement following anticoagulation treatment, and the prevalence of this condition after ECMO cannulation.
