Successful use of Extra Corporeal Membrane Oxygenation as a bridge to heart transplant performed on a 34-year old woman from Delhi.

The procedure saved the life of 34 year old who was suffering from severe heart failure. As her health was in a critical state, the young woman had to be airlifted from her hometown Delhi and brought to the Chennai based multi-specialty hospital for the heart transplant. The successful use of Extra Corporeal Membrane Oxygenation (ECMO) as a bridge to a transplant is extremely uncommon in India since not too many centres in India have the expertise and equipment. The patient responded well to the transplant and can now return to Delhi.
