Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

8 Scopus citations


Extracorporeal membrane oxygenation in adults is typically reserved for thoracic or cardiac procedures in which insult to the pulmonary circuit has occurred or is anticipated. In this brief report, I describe a case of tracheal obstruction resulting from a retained tracheal stent that was removed through rigid bronchoscopy with extracorporeal membrane oxygenation support.
