Efficiency in extracorporeal membrane oxygenation-cellular deposits on polymethylpentene membranes increase resistance to blood flow and reduce gas exchange capacity

Lehle, Karla ; Philipp, Alois ; Gleich, Otto ; Holzamer, Andreas ; Müller, Thomas ; Bein, Thomas ; Schmid, Christof


Bioline-coated polymethylpentene (PMP) membrane oxygenators (MO) are used for extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) to improve gas exchange in patients with severe acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS). However, in some patients, long-term durability is limited due to fibrous and cellular accumulations on the gas exchange surface which can increase resistance to blood flow and diffusion ...
