Bronchiolitis obliterans (BO) is a disease with a poor prognosis, and a key factor that limits long-term survival after allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT). We here report a case of a 31-year woman with acute lymphatic leukemia, which was treated by chemotherapy and HSCT, and consequently developed BO 2 years after HSCT. A non-tuberculous mycobacterial infection occurred and showed gradual exacerbation. She started taking anti-mycobacterial drugs, but lost appetite, felt tired and finally lost consciousness one month after beginning medication. Arterial blood gas revealed marked hypercapnia. Using extracorporeal life support (ECLS), the carbon dioxide concentration was reduced and her consciousness recovered. To our knowledge, this is the first case in which ECLS was successfully used for hypercapnia in a patient with BO.

We present a case of a patient with stenosis of the pulmonary artery which was successfully treated by implantation of a vascular endoprosthesis. A 50-year-old man underwent left pneumonectomy for lung cancer. Eleven months later, a computed tomographic scan revealed a soft tissue mass in the mediastinum and there was severe stenosis of the remaining right main pulmonary artery. A self-expandable vascular endoprosthesis was implanted in the stenotic portion. We used percutaneous cardiopulmonary ...

We describe here a 63-year-old man presenting with a contralateral pneumothorax following pneumonectomy. After setting up a percutaneous cardiopulmonary support system (PCPS) in advance in preparation for hypoxemia during the operation, resection of bullae was performed. His oxygen saturation and hemodynamic status were stable intraoperatively and we achieved a successful and safe operation swiftly. He had no complications and was discharged on the 10th postoperative day. (Ann Thorac Cardiovasc ...

: Since 1991, we have performed operations for tumors invading the upper airway, left atrium or main pulmonary artery with percutaneous cardiopulmonary support (PCPS) stand by support available. Of 15 cases with PCPS stand by, 6 patients actually underwent operation using PCPS. There were three esophageal cancers invading the carina, two lung neoplasms with left atrial invasion and one neoplasm extending to the main pulmonary artery. One of three patients with esophageal cancer had massive bleed...

: In patients with reduced respiratory function, lung resection is associated with high risk because separate ventilation is generally needed for safe management. For patients with end-stage emphysema, intraoperative respiratory management is important and particularly difficult because neither incomplete oxygenation nor selective ventilation can be performed, so the operation may be interrupted. In this study, we assess the effectiveness of the percutaneous cardiopulmonary support (PCPS) system...

Emergency cardiopulmonary support has been used in the United States since 1986, mainly by physicians at participating centers for the National Registry of Elective Supported Angioplasty. Data from the National Registry as well as the experience in three institutions from a number of operators were analyzed to assess the benefits of the emergency cardiopulmonary support application in patients with hemodynamic collapse. Patients who had experienced either cardiac arrest or hemodynamic collapse w...

Cardiac arrest in the catheterization laboratory is fatal if unresponsive to advanced cardiac life support (ACLS). Seven patients not responding to ACLS following cardiac arrest in the catheterization laboratory underwent percutaneously instituted cardiopulmonary bypass support. Cardiac arrest occurred following abrupt closure postcoronary angioplasty in three patients, during cardiogenic shock in three patients, and during diagnostic angiography in one patient. Cardiopulmonary bypass was instit...

: Herein, we report a case of lung transplantation in a patient with profound preoperative hypercapnia, focusing on the cardiopulmonary bypass strategy used for brain perfusion during the operation. We applied the pH-stat method for acid-base regulation, and thereby achieved the desired outcome without any neurologic deficit.

In past years, a diagnosis of bronchiolitis obliterans syndrome (BOS) after allogeneic hematopoietic cell transplant (HCT) conferred nearly universal mortality secondary to lack of consensus for diagnostic criteria, poorly understood disease pathogenesis, and very few studies of therapeutic or supportive care interventions. Recently, however, progress has been made in these areas: revised consensus diagnostic guidelines are now available, supportive care has improved, there is greater understand...

Bronchiolitis obliterans (BO), which is associated with graft-versus-host disease after allogenic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation, is a major obstacle to survival after bone marrow transplantation due to its gradual progress, eventually leading to respiratory failure. Pumpless extracorporeal interventional lung assist (iLA) is effective in treatment of reversible hypercapnic respiratory failure. In this paper, we present a 23year-old female patient who underwent allogeneic peripheral blo...
