Abstract/OtherAbstract:
PURPOSE: An artificial placenta would change the paradigm of treating extremely premature infants. We hypothesized that using a veno-venous extracorporeal life support (VV-ECLS) artificial placenta after ventilatory failure would stabilize premature lambs and maintain normal fetal physiologic parameters for 70h.
METHODS: A near-term neonatal lamb model (130days; term=145) was used. The right jugular vein (drainage) and umbilical vein (reinfusion) were cannulated with 10-12 Fr cannulas. Lambs were then transitioned to an infant ventilator. After respiratory failure, the endotracheal tube was filled with amniotic fluid, and VV-ECLS total artificial placenta support (TAPS) was initiated. Lambs were maintained on TAPS for 70h.
RESULTS: Six of seven lambs survived for 70h. Mean ventilation time was 57±22min. During ventilation, mean MAP was 51±14mmHg, compared to 44±14mmHg during TAPS (p=0.001). Mean pH and lactate during ventilation were 7.06±0.15 and 5.7±2.3mmol/L, compared to 7.33±0.07 and 2.0±1.8mmol/L during TAPS (p<0.001 for both). pO(2) and pCO(2) remained within normal fetal parameters during TAPS, and mean carotid blood flow was 25±7.5mL/kg/min. Necropsy showed a patent ductus arteriosus and no intracranial hemorrhage in all animals.
CONCLUSIONS: The artificial placenta stabilized premature lambs after ventilatory failure and maintained fetal circulation, hemodynamic stability, gas exchange, and cerebral perfusion for 70h.
